My pcs ballast recently went out and cost to replace is high enough that I think its best to buy new fixture. Want to upgrade from 55g to either 70, 90 or 120 in the next 6-8 months. Whats a good light to buy with the larger tank in mind? I'm deciding between 4 x 65, 2 x 130 and 4 x 96.
The Coralife fixture is so ugly I'd rather have the black metal housing of the Current USA but the Current USA comes with 2 dual actinics. I was thinking I could sell them new and purchase two more dual daylight lamps.
Suggestions? I have the Brightlight whose manufacturer has gone out of business but looking at retrofits, they seem to cost as much as a whole new fixture and the new fixture comes with bulbs.
