    OK All - I am uploading pics to photobucket.... I am posting here on GIRS first - I have not had time to make sure the ballast and bulbs work.... I am assuming it does - but I am super pressed for time ..... so first $75 takes it all..... if the ballast is not functional then I will refund the cash and take the ballast back.....

    It is an ARO Ballast will run 2,3 or 4 lamps and I have 3 URI (reflector in bulb) bulbs - 2 super actnic and 1 aquasun (see pics).

    Anyhow - all four are water proof end caps and there is some corrosion on the bulb pin connectors (a quick brush with a wire brush should take care of everything).....

    Joel- I've got to light a frag tank /site/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/_default/emoticons/smile.gif And actually, I just had a 400w ballast go out on me, replaced both of them, if I have any further problems in the coming months I'm saying ****it and picking up t5s. I think 10 overdriven HO t5s should do on the 120. But for now, yes, the 400s are staying.

    PM'd you overanalyzer
