Wired and working so far - not smoking :)
I wired it just like you suggested, when I plugged it in it lit the room up. I am still seeing little spots....I moved the canopy back on my tank and plugged it in. I can deffinately see a difference. With the standard wiring, there is still too much blue, with this it is only slightly blue...since it's salt water it needs to be. I need to replace them with T8's some time but I just bought them (drs. Foster & smith had a sale). Thanks again, i'll keep you posted.
