    All I got to say is **** them are some killer looking Pendants. Can you run the 400 and 250 w bulbs seperate of each other or not? If so what do you plan on your lighting schedule being?

    Each bulb is independent of each other. I ordered the ballasts, I will need a total of four. I went with the selectable Lumatek ballasts, so I can run all 250W's or all 400W's if I need to. As far as a light schedule, I'm not really sure yet. The ballasts will all be controlled by a Profilux controller. Maybe start with one 250w on one side, then the other, followed by a 400w, then the last. I'm thinking that the controller upstairs can shut the 400w's off if the tank temp gets to high.

    Would love to see how this tank is doing a year later!
