    New DE fixture

    Well I got a new 250w DE fixture to test today from one of our manfactures,its nice and actually much smaller than the units available on the market. with a footprint of 4.5 x 4.5 x 12" its the smallest I have seen on the market so far.
    The ballast is a HQI ballast in an aluminium case with power on/off with fuse protection it is a very solid unit it comes with 2 options hanging cables or 8"-10" Aluminium arms that hook on to the rim all included.

    I think these units with there small footprint will be great for hobbiest since the other brands are so big, that on a 4 foot tank you can only put 2. With these lil units you can add 3 on a 4' tank if needed.

    I will take some pics of the unit and will take one with a 20K XM in it burning in will post them soon.

    Interesting to say the least...
    What's gonna be the going price on those puppies?

    And how exactly does the arm mount? To the side of the aquarium? Or inside the canopy?

    WHo makes 'em?

    Does it have to work off their ballast? Or could I use an Icecap MH ballast?

    Testing phase no pricing made yet.

    The arm mounts on the front and back of the tanks rim.but you can also mount it in the cover with the cables.

    WHo makes 'em?

    Its one of our manufactures from Taiwan who manufactures the majority of lighting that comes out of Taiwan.

    Does it have to work off their ballast? Or could I use an Icecap MH ballast?
    It comes with the MH ballast but some one could always switch ballasts dont see why though.
