Welcome to BallastWise.com
Single light balast starting at $13 most expensive one listed at $50 for T-5 HO
Looks like I will be picking up a 55 Gal
on Friday. So the custom build is on hold for some time I am thinking. I do have some questions on water temp now as my 5 gal
is roughly sitting at 80 degrees (with the heater off) and I am only using the bulb the tank came with. Looking to change it out for a 50/50 bulb. The top is a solid piece, should I lift the lid and add fans to the sides? I do have some crabs in it and was debating on adding a small piece of coral but with the temp getting high I want to make sure it would be safe to do. This is just to get some more life into the tank until I get my larger one set up and cycled.
As always thanks for the help.
Oh and if anyone knows where I could look for a reef club in Winchester VA area Id appreciate the info.
