I recently upgraded to a 75 gallon tank. I am planning to make it mostly SPS. I am looking into metal halide lighting and have come across a reasonably priced system for a 717w metal halide fixtur and ballast system. It features 3x175w hqi; 2x96w; and, 4x bluemood LED.

It is manufactured by Odyssea. I know one other person that said it would "do the job", but am wondering if anyone else has any knowledge of this manufacturer. Thanks for any input!!

Aquatraders are the importers for Odyssea equipment. Odyssea lighting are made in China and the quality control is awful. If you get a good fixture & ballast it will last you. If you're unlucky, anything could happen.

Just brought 175w fixture on sale. The prones from ballast to the hood does not fit. Three pin do not go into 4 female. Awaiting reply from the dealer. May not buy this brand again.
