I got the canopy about 90% finished, painted and sealed the inside, mounted the new reflectors, and wired up the 2 250w Iwasaki's, pulled off all the PC lighing for now (gotta hack the ballasts and endcaps and grab the bulbs for now out of it tommorrow to mount in there. I'm going to order new PC bulbs next week
What a difference the Iwasaki's make... thought we'd share a pic, don't mind the coral all sleeping, it was late and the lights had already gone out for the day, but just couldn't resist firing them up. Can't wait for the 400w ballast to show up Monday. This is with a 250w on each side with no actinic/blue supplementation for now. I'm sold, I think it looks great, and the shadows on the center should go away when the 400w gets fired up for the center.
The difference is night and day to us, love the sparling effects of the pin point light sources, and the yellow tint I've read others complaining about is every so slight, but still needs a bit of supplementation.
Let us know what you think. I'll post again once we add the rest of the lights fired up.
