I came across a brand new Hydrel metal halide ballast from a friend for free to see if I can utilize it to save even more money on my DIY
lighting setup, I will be going to pick the ballast up tomorrow however im not sure if it will be compatable. I have all the specs though, if anyone can help me out that would be awsome!
Hydrel 277V 175W M57 Metal Halide Ballast
Model # HSL-5530
Lamp type: M57
If there is anyway for me to use this lighting ill have a very nice 4.7 watts per gallon to start my first reef/fish project while spending under 100 bucks! Thanks again!
