    And, is anyone using one and how does the timer work?

    My New PC's are already not working well and I want to send them back.

    They also make a model without the timer, and separate plugs, like I'm using now. However, if anyone know if the timer controls the 3 seperate systems, I may go with this.

    I'll have two of them, end to end on my 125 like my PC's are now.

    I dont know abot their ballasts. But with Guiesman/ATI bulbs you could probably do LPS on the sandbed and montis and acros further up. Is it a 125 long (6 Feet) or high?

    It's the Long version, about 21 inch high.

    Thanks, I'm doing that kind up set up now with my PC's, but they're kinda crapping out.

    Any other opinions on these lights for my 125?

    While not the best design, the reflector is flat not formed or individual, and the ballasts do not run at 1.0 power factor, less than full power, it should work if kept on the top of the tank and top of the line bulbs are used.
