    Home depot fixture

    Hello,

    I read of a thread where someone was using a cheap fixture from home depot to run a 70w mh bulb, just wondering if someone could point me to the thread or tell me about the fixture? I tried to search and couldn't find it. Thanks.

    Hey Sean,

    I found a great post at http://www.nano-reef.com/forums/show...&pagenumber=1.

    The only problem is there are a few different fixtures out there and the one that seems to work best QF300 is not in stock at most home depots. Right now i'm looking at either the EQ300WL or WQ300 both by regent. I've acctually got a thread going asking which bulbs would fit directly into these fixtures at http://www.nano-reef.com/forums/show...threadid=40289 you can tag along.

    Hope that helps,
    StephG

    This is American, but someone on another forum said that they work fine (just put it in a electrical box).

    Sean,

    I'm still looking for a ballast accutally. Have'nt done my homework yet on which brands and what type to buy. Still looking. Let me know what you find if anything.
