Halide Ballst Died - Looking for a Deal

Post by mike623 on Thu 08 Dec 2011, 8:46 pm

Got home from work today and found out my ballast died. It's a sunlight supply bluewave dual 250w m80. I just put 2 brand new xm 10k bulbs in yesterday. Does anyone have one of these ballast laying around they would part with? Can't really afford to buy a new one right now. I might try a different ballast if my pendants would plug in, They have weird plugs on them. Let me know what you have and price. Thanks in advance.

That one will be a little tough to find used. Good luck in your search.

Looks like I got my ballast back working for now cheers . I had to replace a resistor and I found out my switch is messed up. Before I invest in a new ballast I think I might look into going LED. Does anyone have any advice with the LED's like which ones to get? Can you keep SPS coral alive and thriving with LED?

There's been alot of disscusion on LEDs... DYI, Fixtures ect... Several of us are using the Evolution style fixtures, including me. I'm growing SPS just fine under mine. Glad you got your ballast back online though.
