I would remove the wiring, totally clean the tank, consider new lights (AH Supply), and start over with a clean setup. I even replace the little digital thermometer when I do this.

yea this has been sitting outside for I don't know how long so I don't think I even want to mess with the ballasts and wiring. Now I just have to get someone to help me move it to the back deck so I can get started on it. That should happen tomorrow afternoon.

Definitely. If it's been sitting out you definitely need to junk the electrical stuff.

Good luck!
