I have two 10k bulbs. They are both CoralLife. One is Actinic and the other is plain 10k. I have VHO
Ballasts (i hope i spelled that right). I got the tank, top, and stand second-hand. The man before me made his own setup to accomodate VHO
bulbs. I have not yet invested in one because I am considering upgrading to a 100-125 gal
setup. Money is a factor with school starting in a few weeks.
*another light bulb going on*
Spending a few bucks on a bulb wont hurt too bad. I know both ballasts function because I am have both plugged in with my current bulbs using both ballasts. I am hoping to let this setup settle a bit before adding complicated inverts. Its nice to have a foundation to work with though.
I appreciate all encouragment!
Thanks for taking the time to write
