Need some recommendations for new lighting
I picked up a 75 gl today and have decided that the two fixtures on my 100gl will work better on this new tank so I need some help for lighting on the 100gl. The 100 gl is five feet long and the current two fixtures are 24" across and now I'm wondering if there isn't a five foot long fixture or am I going to have to go DIY? I am NOT a DIY gal by any stretch of the imagination. The B/F is but he's not really being to supportive on the new tank, as in, "Oh yes, you really had to have another tank" and then walks away rolling his eyes.
Is there such thing as a five foot long fixture? That will take energy efficient 6500 K bulbs? Maybe Home Depot or Lowes, something along the lights of a shop light, that will do the job? I've seen the rain gutter DIY lights, and while I really like them (can even be painted to match) the retrofit wiring business is way over my head. Help?
