    Either Sunlight Supply or Lumatek are very good brands. CoralVue is pretty good as well.

    MarineDepot.com is a good place to start.

    The designer of the icecap ballast went to coralvue after icecap shut down.

    My IceCap had issues and I switched to Lumatek. I couldn't be happier. My halide bulbs look new even after 9 months.
