The ARO ballasts from hellolights are excellent IMO
, and I actually prefer them to Icecaps. A 4x95w VHO
set-up would work great if you are interested in softies, LPS
, some lower light SPS
etc. If you are at all interested in doing high light SPS
and clams, I would go ahead and spend the money on a halide and 1 or 2 VHO
actinics. Better to do it all at once, instead of buying an inadequate lighting system now, and having to buy another 6 months down the road.
