It would also be nice to have when replacing old lamps or changing to a lower K lamp to avoid burning corals.

For Vari-Ballast Sales contact

sales@vb1000.com or sales1@iepc.cc

have you contacted them to get a price quote on the VB200 or VB400?
I would assume those would be the ones you would be intrested in.. I would ask if those models run 2 lamps.. its tiny! 6X6X4 inches.. they look pretty cool..
