where do i get these wires?

ok so i got an odyssea light fixture for free. it was a four bulb fixture, but 2 of them are 96w, and 2 are 65w...the wire going to the 65w bulbs is melted on one of them...i just need to get this wire to get the thing to run...heres a pic of the whole wire..

If there is a melted wire, that means that too much voltage/amperage was run through it. Unless the balasts have been replaced, I would NOT trust this fixture. The wire isn't the problem, it's a symptom of a _serious_ problem - as in "burn your house down" serious.

he said something about there was an "arch" so the electricity crossed somewhere.

so do you know where i can get a decent CHEAP balast? I would like it to be a 2x65 balast, but 96 is cool too, as the bulbs i got w/it arent new or anything lol.

How far can you run wires from the ballast? mrrrkva Saltwater Reef Aquaria 0 05-30-2004 12:23 AM
