    Thanks!
    What ballast you've had with that fixture?
    What was the bulb?

    I've used all brands and i haven't seen a difference. 20k pics look better than 14k

    Do you find the zoas and palys do better in those tubs with the coarse substrate? Rather than frag racks? Is there a reason you do it that way? I want to learn from the master. :)

    I've heard good things about the Galaxy ballast. Also the old Blue Wave ballasts were really good!
    My best experience with zoas was with 65K 250W Iwasaki bulbs using the old dual PFO ballast back in the day. The zoas just grew like weeds and had beautiful fat healthy polyps. Today I'm using T5s and they still grow like weeds, but the halides were better...
    I'm trying to figure out some room in the house to set up another system with halides in the future. I miss my halides a lot.
    Thanks for sharing, man.
    Please share your LED settings to help people using the same fixture.
    Keep zoaing!
    Grandis.

    I just get whatever bulb is available at my local wholesaler lol. Sometimes hamilton, sometimes radion, sometimes ushio, sometimes iwasaki the only difference i've seen was the radion bulbs 20k was very nice but growth was the same all around. ballast the same one would go out i would put any other and everything looked the same. can't upload a file here at least i don't know how.
