    Retro fit DIY + PC Hood

    Just thinking, I have a 48 inch Coralife Aqualight, 4x65 Watt PC hood with two little fans.. Could a guy just mount 2-250 watt mogul based MH lamps in their and switch all 4 65 Watt PC's to Actinic? Might be a bit tight , MH to PC lamp will be zero clearance and I'm not sure about the PC reflector. Any input?

    Thanks

    I'd be worried about clearance from the water and the heat... 250s run hot! Not sure how hot PCs run, but I can touch my VHOs without a trip the doctor, can't do that with my MH...

    Thanks for the reply!
    I was thinking of hanging it from the ceiling.
