What do you guys think? Reef Optix 3 HQI pendants or PFO HQI pendants. Which one is better? Is there any additional wiring required if you buy PFO HQI pendants and use them with a SLS HQI ballast?

Thanks,
Jeff

The ROIII has a more square output. The PFO is more retangular. I personally like the build on the ROIII better.

If you buy the PFO pendant to hook up to a SLS ballast, you need to buy the SLS male plug and splice it into the PFO pendant cord. The same applies for the reverse situation.

the PFO is the better reflector performance wise it seems...

It says new and old PFO.
How do I know if I have a new PFO?
