Hi I promise to post some pics of my built in work in progress...

I could use some advice on Lighting. I was thinking of going with (2) 250W 10K or 14.5K Ushios. Any thoughts here?

I like the Lumen bright 3 pendants. 19" dia

I don't know which ballasts are best for bulb longevity, brightness, and ballast longevity. I heard Ice Caps are not that great, but not that bad either.

My tank is 22.5" height, 24" width, 72" long.

I also plan to run a Iwaki 55RLT and use the head pressure for several outlets hidden in live rock.

Lastly, I was told that Octopus 250 would be sufficient.
