I think i found the perfect lighting for salty wrenches tank
The Dual Satellite Compact Fluorescent Fixtures by current it is 12 inches long Two 18 watt compacts and it has led moonlights!
Plus it wont set him back to much money!
It will need to be used over a glass canopy
He could prolly grow a clam with this monster
I think its perfect for you saltywrench :D
