    reeftech vho ballast

    Having trouble wiring a vho reeftech flourescent ballast. I know the red wires go to each pin of the tubes, but I am confused on the single yellow wire. Not sure how to wire each pin without splicing the wire---see diagram

    The ovals at the bulbs are end caps.
    wires from each pin is connected together.

    The ovals above the ballast are marettes

    This is the way it`s wired to work.

    Oh Yeah----actually, about a year ago I decided to get rid of my icecap 660---running 2 400watt MH 20K + 4 48" vho was a little excessive. I now realize I need the VHO daylight along with my 800 watts of MH
