    I have a dual electronic ballast, Coralvue, with reflectors and 3 bulbs, all around 10K. I would recommend changing the bulbs, as their ages are as follows:

    - 2 x specular aluminium reflectors with mogul fittings
    - 2 x 250 W SE coralvue 10 000 K bulbs, 8 months use
    - 1 x 250 W SE coralvue 10 000 K bulb, 4 month use

    If you can use ready made pendents then I have 2 aquamedic aquastarlight future units. They are double ended globes though. R1500 for both.

    This is the pic of when I bought them. Ballasts are inside the casing.
