Aquarium Ballasts and Bulbs

Aquarium Ballasts and Bulbs

Metal Halide aquarium lighting is the lighting of choice for many reef aquarists. Metal halides produce more lumens per watt than any other aquarium lighting source. The three types of magnetic ballasts commonly used in the aquarium hobby are traditional probe start, pulse start, and HQI.

Aquarium electronic metal halide ballasts are superior over magnetic ballasts because they will drive any bulb of the rated wattage. Electronic metal halide ballasts produce less heat and consume less electricity, making them much more efficient than traditional ballasts. Some electronic metal halide ballasts are available with a dimming switch. Our ballasts power some of the most popular aquarium lighting systems including: Current Orbit, Satellite, AquaPod and Coralife Aqualight lighting fixtures.
