I am setting up a 210 and the pump is external and is very loud. I have a pad under it and even with the doors shut. I was going to put some insulation on the inside of the stand and was thinking of foam rubber and covering that with plastic to keep the moisture out of it. Does anyone have any better ideas?
Also, I was going to put 3 400w Icecap MHs on the tank with a couple of VHOs for some blue tint. But in doing research I found that I could get 5 250w Icecap MHs for about $200 less. I was going to put the ballast in my attic with a fan blowing the heat out of a vent and also 4 4" fans blowing the hot air out of the hood up into the attic and outside. Will 5 250w MH
and 2 VHO
be to hot?
I was going to line the whole inside of the hood with some aluminum instead of getting the individual fixtures to save space. What kind of aluminum should I get? Also does Icecap have a ballast that I can run multiple lights of so I don't have to have 5 ballast running at one time?
Sorry this is so long but I am trying to get this right the first time. Thanks for everything.
