    Hi guys.

    Im trying to source out 54W T5 ballast for a new tank. The pet shops usually go for more than R200 for a dual t5 ballast, but im sure one can get it cheaper elsewhere...

    I went to lighting & builders warehouse and they have ballasts but I'm not 100% sure if they are correct as they guy said it was for wattages between 50 to 80.

    Is there anything I should know b4 buying those?

    Hi Highlander - try and get some advice from a lighting speciality shop on the balasts. They should be able to tell you which make/model you need to get for 54 watt high output globes....
