Yus! I don't think I'll make many because I'm getting more driftwood, but one or two could be fun.

There seems to be a whole lotta mixed reviews on this company.
I remember back when I lived closer to my mom that an exotics shop there had the versa tops and I think they had a light strip that would fit?
I may have to visit them again.

Are your hoping to breed your bristlenose? The babies will be so cute!

I am on the fence about the fixture. It's reviews are 50/50 good/bad :/

I want to breed them, just for fun. Maybe I'll have babies to sell!



As for the light I'd like to stay under seventy. I may just go with a dual t8 based on some conversations I had tonight. That'd make. even. cheaper!

Ugh, late night research. Sorry to somewhat spam your journal thread. lol

So, I *think* I've come to the conclusion that the negative reviews are based on the older models and the newer ones are a bit more reliable?

But then again, a review made 8 days ago about it catching fire O.O
Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Odyssea 48" T5 HO Aquarium Light Dual Fluorescent Hood Fixture - Plant 2x54W

We just had a fire in an apartment 60 yards away from our apartment. I don't want a fire on my fish tank.
