Some ballast won't work if you take a lamp off line. It will sense an interuption and shut down or continue to pulse till it reactivates the lamp.

It has.
Sometimes I get floaties and I don't want to run a canister to polish it. Figure the foam will trap these floaties.

Foam for bubble trap.

If any one uses pond foam or any foam do you clean it regularly or just leave it alone and et your fuge handle any possible nitrate?

Thanks
