Product Questions

I am looking to light a 40g breeder and I've decided to use one 250w MH to light it. I am stuck between this reflector and the reef brite reflector. The reef brite is 15" long vs the Hamilton being 12" long. I am really trying to maximize spread since I decided to go with one 250w bulb instead of a two 150w bulbs. Does the Hamilton spread light better despite being smaller? Which reflector would you choose given this scenario? Thank you

Hey there,
Due to the reflector geometry and finish, you will likely find that the Cayman sun does a better job of spreading and directing the light over your aquarium. The Reefbrite reflectors are also only wired to work with their ballasts, while the Cayman sun will be compatible with a wider range of ballast options.

Hope this helps!

Would i be able to buy the 400w fixture and the adjustable luxcore ballast and run both 250w and 400w out of this reflector?

Great question!
As long as the ballast and the corresponding bulb are 250 or 400 watt respectively this can work great! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Does this not come with a ballast? If I order this fixture, is it ready to be plugged in and ready to use?

Hi Nick,
That is correct, the product you are looking at is only a component of a system (specifically a reflector). You would need a bulb and a ballast. You can get an entire MH system which happens to use this reflector. If you purchase the system it includes ballast, reflector and bulb.
