Yeah. I have seen that as well. It's too bad you don't have another ballast to test it with. Mine worked for about a week, and then it wouldn't work at all. The new ones fire up within seconds, as opposed to minutes like the other one. I guess it could depend on the ballast itself. I would consider replacing the bulb first and see if that is where your problem is. Or, if you have a lfs that runs MH, you could see about testing it on one of their ballasts there to see if it is good or not.

if you think it might be a fault with something you ordered from captivereefs.com I would suggest posting in the captivereefs.com forum as he is more likely to see it (although he does frequent the boards pretty regularly) I would also suggest emailing him as the most direct route to correct any issues you may have.

I didn't order it from darin, I just know that he sells coralvue products so I wanted to ask him if he knew more about this particular product.

I contacted Dave at Coralvue and he is going to send me a new ballast once he gets the faulty one. Sounds like a good guy to do business with.
