How far can you run wires from the ballast?

I am going to have 2 tanks 15 feet apart. I am going to put the PFO ballast in the crawl space. How far can you run the wiring? I figure I will need to run in 15 feet in each direction, if you count vertical feet as well. Is this too far? Will my lighting diminish. I saw something with ICEcap ballast that u can only run them 15 feet. Are PFO's different?
