I just found out that the halides from aquatraders have a small chance of catching on fire... Sorry for the bad info and dont take the risk of catching your house on fire. Lol whoops

yes everything thats ul should be marked with their sticker, you've probably seen the symbol a million times and never noticed.

I have an Oddysea Metal Hallide 48" 608w and It works perfectly but when you order ask for the legs because the ones in the box doesn't fit. And switch the 2 250w bulbs with 2 150w bulbs.
