    Hi All. My light pendant has bombed out and I was wondering if some reefers out there had some spare lights, fluorescents lying around that I could borrow. I could take the light in on thursday but nothing will get done till next tuesday because of the public holidays next week. Maybe one of you is a sparky out there.

    Please, Im desperate

    Ya Dallas is the man. Les one of the capacitors burnt out over the weekend and I got a replacement today. When I tried to install it all things went pear shaped an only one halide and two t5's work. I'm taking it in tomorrow for the pet shop to look at but if they can't help it will have to go to the supplier which I'm worried about especially with the umcoming long weekend.

    Thanks Chikaboo and Jacques for your offering and concerns but Dallas has really bailed my corals out of the poo
