  • My new reflector for roasting corals.



    Finally arrived and work in progress fixing them up.

    Almost done now, just need to change the connector from PGS, hook up the ballast, screw in the bulbs, hang up the fixture and I'm gone.

    3x250W BLV 10kk SE.

            Very nice

            Its the same of my aquarium (the big) or is the mini?



            But, the bulbs is a 250w 14000º Aquaconnect DE (E40)

            Very good ilumination

              Those are the mini.

              3 of them and the actual length spans 43" which fully covers my tank side to side (taking into account the bracing).

              Should be able to fire them up on Sat.

                  I got them from Pacific Garden Supply in California. http://www.pacificgardensupply.com

                  With the kind help of another reefer, I managed to hooked the reflectors up today.

                  The spread is very even.

                        losmandy, the lights look pretty close to the water surface. The spread should be more evened out if raised, but since you said you dont have that problem and it doesnt look like it, it should be ok. Colors and tank are very beautiful!

                          Hi Invincible,

                          The surface area of the reflectors actually covers the length of my tank nicely (minus the bracing).
                          Even at 4-5" off the water surface, there are already light leaking out thru the side of the tank so I think if I raise it higher then perhaps the spread would not improve too much.
