This question has probably already been asked before, but I couldn't find any information amongst all the posts. I apologize for asking it again.
We recently put up a 55 gallon fresh water tank that I would like to set up with live plants. The tank came with two 22 inch hoods that take 1 18" T8 bulb each. The hoods are rated 120 VAC, 17W, 60H.
Should I buy a new hood for the tank (prefer not to spend more money) or are there some good 18" T8 bulbs that I can replace the original bulbs with?
Any advice is greatly appreciated....
