I might be wrong but Im not so sure 800 total watts of heaters would do much for your system.. ROFL

thanks for the info. Hoops.. :P I dont think I would try anything under 6500K since I have the option to go a little higher.. the 10K sounds cool.. I probibly dont need any more light then 2 175's and could just go with 14K's and leave the suplemental light out.. Im still debating.. thanks.. :P
. one of my MH
ballasts came in the mail today its a magnetic and man was that thing bigger then I was expecting..

Agreed, not a bad phlosopy to have.. always better then not having enough.. your running VHO
on the 75 though.. probibly less heat.. but I doubt your heaters are running alot anyway..
Thanks again.. :P
