    Hi,

    I'm starting to clean out my shed of aquarium stuff I don't need and no longer can remember why I'm holding onto it. I have two ballasts that were both barely used.

    $25.00: Sylvania Quicktronic Program Start 4x 54T5HO. Google it, it is a beast, and easily one of the best T5 ballasts out there. It can also fire power compacts and be wired for overdriving.

    $20.00:  Slimline 108 watt, program start, for 108-watt quad PC, driving 2x 54T5HO, or overdriving virtually anything you want. I'm including the 10,000k quad (still fires up bright) and polished reflector. Great for a sump or frag tank.

    I also have 2x dimmable T8 ballasts. These are super efficient, high frequency, and can run just about anything up to 32 watts. Best use to Overdrive 3x 24-watt T5HO, which was their intended use. They can be controlled by a 0-10V controller like LEDs. $15 each.


    Also going to throw on Ebay so jump on this smoking deal. I live in Thousand Oaks.

    Well, posted on craigslist for more money. You guys here get better pricing of course. The Quicktronic ballast really is awesome and just as good as what ATI uses. I compared it to my Fulham Workhorse 5 ballasts - and no comparison really. The quictronic is brighter and cooler running.
