    LoL. Come to think of it, when my neighbor came over his comments went something like this, "I think I'm going to jail for a while, I just wanted to give you this (the light). I thought you might be able to use it with your plants..." Something, ramble, something, ramble, something (he had a tendency to ramble, and I would zone in and out of his rambles)

    So the consensus is:
    1) Will burn up the neps, or my apartment
    2) Might be great for growing hydroponic tomatoes all winter

    ...great, I don't even like tomatoes

    toss it out!

    get rid of that old bulb, possible damage to the inner tube from over use can be very hazerdous. I have had them (MH) explode in my grow twice in 8 yrs. There are reports of this regularly on the OGF site.
    On the other hand, the fixture is well worth saving.

    Darn, wish I'd caught this thread earlier... yep, probably a metal halide, not high press. sodium (those are usually cylindrical, like a straight tube). Either 175 or 250w (it would say for sure on the bulb)... not something you could use on top of a glass terrarium, but mass could use it for his pimped out grow area of awesomeness.

    In case you were wondering, I can special order this stuff at work tho we don't specialize in "indoor agriculture." I'm NOT one of those closet tomato growers... tho if you've got a closet, you might make a little money on the side
