    DIY MH project

    I just finished up building the ballast setup for my 90 tank.

    Ballast are Advanced m58 250 cap&coils. Bulbs are XM 250 watt 10k. Total cost under $200 including all taxes.

    Still waiting for 46 1/2 actinic bulbs. then I can install them in a remade canopy from AGA. Had to increase size of canopy from 6 inchs to 12 inch to allow for height of lamps from water. Radio shack 120 volt fans are installed for cooling
