Lighting wanted

Postby snorulz on Thu Feb 24, 2005 2:38 pm

I have a 55 FOWLR tank. I currently have the standard single bulb florescent with a 50/50 bulb. I would like something that puts off more light. Even a double bulb florescent would be an improvement. The tank is 48" long. Thanks

$25 for a 36" beat up old dual 55 watt PC retro kit.
It originally was a 36" 110 watt AGA light system, then I threw out the cover for it and cut the reflector in two pieces for my fuge.
It's sitting in the corner now unused. It still works, the bulbs are old but for a FOWLR it shouldn't matter that much. I have no idea what bulbs are in there. I think 10K but not sure.
To look good and for support it will need some type cover.
It's in 2 pieces so you can go 36" or 48" if needed.
