Lighting question

I have a coralife aqua light pro with 2-150w metal halides and 2-96w pc actinics. I just got some reeflux 12ks but I want to know if I can up the wattage to 250. What would I have to do besides get new bulbs/ballast? Can I put 250s in that fixture?

You can't up the wattage. They are different size lamps and will need different size sockets to accommodate. If you are interested in replacing the socket hardware, then it's possible. I believe the 150 and 250 watt fixtures utilize the same casing.
it might not be cost effective though. You might just upgrade to better lighting, and sell that unit off.
