Aquarium lighting ideas
Just bought a new 40 gallon tank; It did not come with any light fixtures--so, I'm hoping to get some input on possible light fixtures from you guys. .. I don't want to have to break the bank either lol. Does anyone have any advice regarding compact fluorescents? I was thinking maybe something without a giant hood.

P.s. the tank will house cichlids and probably mostly rocks (not much planting)

I think it may be interesting for you to look over this thread to see what some of us done, wonderful solutions for tanks (plants and fish) at very little cost

I say take a trip to the next home store :-) I use all daylight bulbs/ florescent on all my tanks from the home store, you can see the 'results' in my aquarium log here next to the User tap :-)
