WEll I sure hope that's not it! Guess we'll find out.
Bad news, amazon sent me the wrong size bulb. Good news is they are shipping me the correct one (or so I hope) for free however I won't get it till Tuesday. I'm not to convinced the one they will ship me will be right. This will make 6-7 days since my plants have had light. I put my old light bulb on there but it's not even strong enough to light up my fish tank. I need to find a quick solution. I'm afraid my plants are going to die.
I'll be checking out the hardware stores tomorrow in hopes I'll find one.
