What metal halide ballast?

My coralvue ballast crapped out on me and so I am trying to get a hold of Dave at coralvue but at the same time I am pricing other ballasts. My father is an electrician so he can get parts for wholesale. What metal halide can I get to use for my 250 watt mogul metal halide system? I want it to be electronic as well.

TIA,
Josh
