So I bought a hang-on tank model coralife mh light from another member on here who said he thought the ballast could be bad. From my testing with my multi-meter between the two contacts where the bulb goes I have 120v their. My question is should I have 120 or is it suppose to be regulated and its over powering the bulb and thats why its not turning on? I dont have a bulb right now so for all I know it could be working, any of you guys who maybe built your own or have experience with what Im talking about let me know please. Also if anyone around roseville has a bulb I can buy or an old one your not using anymore I can pick up tonight or w/e let me know.

As always thanks for your help.

Where is Roseville? How far from Kalamazoo?
About the ballast question, I don't know. I don't know if he would mind but Tankzombie helped me with my ballast re-wire and he is a electrician you could try asking him.
