    I bought a Coralife 150 W HQI pendant used with no manual. I can't find a website for Coralife products either. For the life of me I can't figure out how to get the lens off to replace the bulb. Does anyone have one of these to know how to accomplish this?

    Thanks, I couldn't find that on any search. But alas, no manuals or much of any information on that website. Darn.

    Nope no side panel or screws. This is a solid black cylinder molded to cone at the top.
    Sean, I think it either screws apart at the top or the lens assembly is friction fit into the cylinder. I tried getting it to come apart at the top before and didn't have any luck. I will have to try again. It obviously has to come aprt somehow.
    Doesn't someone have one of these? I thought it was very common. Sounds like fnvarner did but maybe they have changed the design now.

    it has to be cooled down but if you look at the bulb there's like a chrome reflector grab there and the top and pull it should pop right open

    I can't grab there, there is a glass lens. What pops open on the one you have? The top or then lens assembly?
