So. . . We found some at home depot. 2 bulb 48" T5's that say they come with plant growing bulbs. I hope land plants and water plants need the same stuff. $100, so I guess that'll have to do, not gonna find anything better.
I missed this, and BOOOO! That is SO not fair. . . you should be fine with the lights from Home Depot, though. As long as the K rating is right, full spectrum, all the fun stuff. I have random generic Home Depot lights on 2 of my tanks and the plants are thriving! Of course, mine isn't a 90g. . . but I bet you'll be okay, plus you save a lot of money going that route!
