      does it come with ballast?
      Proud owner of an Elegance Coral "that lived". (It is thriving whith long tentacle tips...purchased in January 2005.) It has white tentacle tips, I beleive this has something to do with ones that will typically live due to the collection site.

            too expensive for a single MH bulb setup.

              I've seen them, they are perfect for nano tanks.

                This sparked some interest for me as well. I want 20K though I am not wanting to add a 3rd pendant to my system but I would love to add a lower wattage(150w would be okay) 20K light...I don't think the amount of "reach" would work for my setup though. The tank is 24" wide (front to back) and I would need it to extend 10"-12" out over the tank, it looks like it may only go 5-6". I can only mount it to the overflow back wall as I have a eurobrace design, another issue. It may work though, hmmmm...I wonder how it would look with the mini pendants hanging to either side and above it? I wonder how much noise the internal fan makes? I don't need fans since I am going to have a completely open top. I got really sick of the din of canopy fans on my old tank. I also wonder how high it sits up over the water. I didn't notice height measurements. Some things to find out...price is a bit steep, but lighting isn't cheap
