i know that dual means 2 but....

if i get a ballast that say it is a dual 250watt
example at captivereefs.com part number = lt-PFAQ2-250MH-120V

will that run 2 x 250 mh bulbs or 2 x 125 watt bulbs,,,,?

sorry for the duh question....ive read alot of pages here and it has not been asked or answered thanks...nico

NO. For MH you MUST match the wattage on the ballast with the wattage of the bulb. dual 250 will only work with two 250W bulbs.
