Wonderful, I buy german engineering, and this is the $#!t I get (Check Red Circle). post-10445-1150229121_thumb.jpg

After 1 year of operating, the ballast blows, and I fry 2 bulbs in the process of determining wtf has happened.

 

 

B) But thats ok, 250 watts of 20k never looked so good...(weird angle never taken before)post-10445-1150228659_thumb.jpg

Tank looks good. What pendant is the first one? Weren't you using an AM fixture?

 

What new light did you switch do?

The ballast was made in china. The light I replaced it with is an Ocean Light from aqua medic. It has an external ballast that IS made in germany and so far everything is working great, and I am actually getting better polyp extention from my millipora on top.

 

Thank you for the kind comments. I wasnt too happy having to shell out all this money for a new light.
