    You could put them up for sale on our new site Fish Stuff Traders. Its a free classified. I put up a USA and UK version. You would be my first listing. :)

    I love shameless self promotion. :)

    On my 55 reef with softies and LPS, I went with 440 watts VHO powered by 2 PFO ballasts. On the 135g, I'm going with a system I found at Coral Reef Eco Systems. The 72" Professional Series Hood 3 x 175-400w MH and 2 x 160w VHO is $819.00. I had a very hard time finding an all-in-one 72 inch hood.

    I hope to keep clams someday.

    that system should work very well for you. I am partial to the package systems as it is much cleaner and easy to maintain. since my system is a full 26" to the top of sand bed I wanted the flexibility to play with lights a bit so Im putting in individual units, (and i got a smokin deal on them). keep us posted on how you like your lights as things progress. sounds like you have this part dialed in. good luck
