    They are 3 electronic ballasts, been a while since I messed around with them so I forgot the specs and brand. But they work, and they light the bulbs.

    Check out these screens to prevent jumpers! DIY with a heat gun to bend the frames to match the curve of the bow front. Also had to heat the 90 plastic corner pieces to open them up to a larger angle. [​IMG][​IMG]

    There was more cursing than I'd like to admit to. And more than once I told myself it felt more like a quilting project than a reefing project....trying to keep those mesh lines straight.

    Thanks guys, I'd say it was a labor of love....but then I'd be lying.

    I think so! My tentative plan is to transfer everything into the stock tank on Friday and then move the tanks on Saturday, and glue all the PVC...give it 24 hours and then hopefully fill and start the 155 bowfront for reals on Sunday!

    Thanks! Wish I could take credit for it, but there was a thread I was copying on one of the national forums. I'm really happy with how they turned out...especially with my yellow coris wrasse jumping to his demise a while ago.
