Somehow I think I got a surge because the loss of power resulted in a loss of my really really cheap made in china light
I purchased 2 Fulham workhorse 7 ballasts and 8x39watt T5HO bulbs to begin building a new fixture to hang over the tank.
I'm looking for waterproof, shunted sockets and I can't seem to find them.
Do they not exist?
I figured this would be an easy project but like everything else in's not...
Any ideas?
Hi Drew,

Something like these?

Don't know if they are shunted or not. AH Supply, call and talk to Kim and he can answer your questions.
