    HQI Metal Halide

    Just saw these new HQI Metal Halide systems from Aquamedic. Real nice fixtures (Blue/Red even!) with electronic Ballasts and no fans.

    What are the pro and Cons of these?... Anybody?

    Thanks!

    In general, electronic mh ballasts run a little cooler and are a little more efficient than magnetic ballasts. I personally like them better..the Aquamedic fixtures, I know nothing about..

    Aquamedic vent through the TOP (not sides), which makes having a canopy a little easier for me.
