Of course I am still trying to verify it will provide sufficient light in a 30" tank before I pick them up.

I knew the guy too. But he gave me the back story and I can see why he didnt wanna drop. Its supposed to be in mint condition brand new. I got the apopka guy down before too, it was just this fixture. he also has a MH triple 250 coming up for $500 but thats too rich for my blood

a 6 lamp t5 is nopt going to be enough lighting for your 220, you'll need atleast 8, i'd prefer 10 though

The Nova is a 12 bulb T5 fixture. Carey, the 3 bulb 250 watt he is selling, is it just the halides? Could you ask him if it is a T5 combo, or has the moonlight LED's? If you wouldn't mind taking a look at them while your there I may consider getting them from him.

I'll check them out when I pick up my lights. I believe its an aquamedic fixture. He was very proud of the MH setup lol. I'll let you know soon as I do!

I would contact All-Glass or Oceanic before putting the tank into use. From experience, I know the cross bar holds the tension of the glass expansion when the tank is filled. With it being melted AND the corner being chipped, I would lean on the side of caution.

Carey, the halides are a 6 ft fixture? I really appreciate the help, just let me know if you think they are in good condition, I trust your judgement on it.
