I have two complete sets of spare 35w 4300k hids. I can't imagine running this light over my tank, it's pretty damn bright. As for ballast heat I barely get any at all with my 35w kit. With my 55w kit it does get a little warm. Only thing that gets pretty hot would be the bulb itself. Maybe I could do a diy in a desk lamp housing to compare differences vs my 15 watt 4500 cfl
