To make matter worse, I need pendant type instead of "on the tank - OTT" type. I have visited almost all major fish shop in Kuala Lumpur to source for 5ft T5 pendant light but ended up with Metal Halide option only.
Being persistent and stubborn, I got an idea to have it customize to my requirement.
It is going going to be T5HO 80w x 4 powered by 2 OSRAM high performance electronic ballast (as picture below). This ballast is made in Germany.
For the light bulb, I am opting for Giesemann Powerchrome Midday (6000K), either x4 or combination of x2 Giesemann and x2 Aqua Zonic Super Bright 10,000K.
Info on Giesemann light bulb (taken directly from Giesemann website);
POWERCHROME midday - a full spectrum lamp which closely imitates natural sunlight at 6000 Kelvin. Suitable for fresh-water, salt-water, reef aquariums
Rated at 6,000 Kelvin with a spectrum designed to recreate sunlight in both fresh and salt water aquariums. This tube can be used on both freshwater and saltwater aquariums.
Stay tuned for more pictures and info . . .
Cant wait for the light set to arrive . . . few more days . . .
