I'm sure my tank is cycled, got an ammo then nitrite spike over week one and two, my nitrate was still very high, but I added 41kg lr
and this got rid of the nitrate over a couple of days (the rock was from an established tank).
Unless you mean you got the reflector with a bulb cap? If so then you can plug any light you want to it becasue it doesn't come with a ballast. You have to buy the ballast seperately.
no, I got it off ebay, its a commercial floodlight so its large and dosen't look pretty, but if I can half-descently hide it and it lights the bulbs, who cares?!
... anyways It was cheap so if needs be it can be sold or stored away,
the instructions say "FLOODLIGHT FOR 150-400 WATT DISCHARGE LAMPS" all it mentions doing is changing the fuse.
