I have two IceCap Model 430 Electronic Ballasts. They are 120 Volt, 60 Hz, 3.4 Amps max. They were driving 4 six foot VHO
bulbs in an older tank.
Iím setting up a 95 gallon reef tank. I donít know exactly what type of coral I want to keep, so letís just say Iíd like my lightning to be able to support the widest variety of soft coral as possible at a reasonable cost (although I am kinda partial to anemones).
The new tank is 48Lx18Wx22H. Is it o.k
. to reuse those existing Ballasts? If so, what type of bulbs do I need to look into purchasing?
If these ballasts are old technology (and not worth reusing), and there is something definitively much better for my setup Ė what is it?
