I know you arent going to, but imagine the temp issues youd have running that. My microwave at home doesnt use 1,000 watts.... For that fact, im prob just over 1,000w of total power consumption in regards to my 125

Not to mention that a store owner gave you this... Had it been someone without the sense to question this, that store owner woulda killed someones entire tank by giving that bulb away
