    Lighting Metal Halide Drygoods 250w de Hamilton fixture+ballast - $100

    250w de fixture with ballast, and led moonlights. Not to sure on the model as I 3 from a tank breakdown and only need two of them. Will do shipping, buyer pays, but the ballast is very heavy so It may be expensive. I do have some smaller items I could throw in to make it more worth it for shippers.

    What lighting type(s) do you use over your primary coral tank?

    The lighting debate is far from over. LEDs seem to be the dominant lighting type at the moment, but there are still options out there. This poll is to determine just how popular each lighting type or types are at the moment. Please answer this poll based on your PRIMARY coral tank.

    So a recent Poll/question of the day talked about MH vs LED - Don't want to debate the plusses or minus of coral growth, etc - this poll is about 'light settings' and therefor how much energy is being used. Halides/T5's go off and on - and are running (from my understanding) at full power...
