4 x 110's on my 75G. Summer where I live gets HOT and that drives the tank temp way more than the VHOs. I do not know if they are cooler than pc lighting but its way more bang for the $$ imo. I bought 2 of thse ballasts after both my main and spare 660's dropped dead..


I use 2 of these and they are cheap enough to toss should one die. With 2, I am not completely dead 'in' the water so to speak should a ballast croak. Not to mention I use timers to pop on the 03's an hour earlier and off an hour later than the 10k's..sort of a dawn to dusk thing...


To fail to plan is to plan to fail.

I think I am going to add 2x55w PCs next week. That is all I can fit in but, it will give me 440w which should be sufficient for most things.

Green & Red Musrooms, Pumping Xenia, Green Star Polyps, Green/Purple Ricordia, Orange Ricordia, Green Acro, Bubble Coral, Hammer Coral, Maxima Clam, Crocea Clam, peppermint shrimp, various snails and crabs.
