I see the Light, MH Ballasts installed and fired up (pics)

Hi Gang
I finally received the MH ballasts today and installed them, here are some pics of the fixture in action.

Ballasts Installed



Front shot


T5HO on Only


250 Watt MH's on Only (Phoenix 14K Bulbs)


Both T5HO and MH's ON


Hopefully this should allow me to keep some reef stuff, anemones and corals etc. You know what's really cool is you can sea the surface ripple in the tank.

wow awesome setup. Those MH's are gonna make your tank look AWESOME with the shimmering effect that they have from the surface of the water rippling. Nice install too.

Thanks Linksyz, I'm monitoring it to see how high the temp in the tank goes, Then I'll see if I need to add the fans.
