    hey i found some cheap and light PL lights, decription:
    PL light electronic Ballast, 55w, different colours of light avaliable, blue, pink or white and you can mix,
    the uncle said that this is for rearing fish and showed me a normal flouresant light(3 tube) set up and said that that was for plants. The description looks the same as the lights that i have now. Anyone know if this is ok? also whats good about blue/pink light?
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Actinic Blue are meant for coral reef aquariums.
    The most suitable type is Daylight (6500K).

    its at an aquarium shop opposite thompson medical center, rainbow aquarium.
    i think it was about 25 or 35 $
    i don't think its suitable so maybe you can change the bulb inside to the normal 36W from nature aquarium (beside rainbow aquarium)
    its very small and light

    I would like to use a 2 1/2 foot tubes so that every part of the tank can get light. If you look at your lights, you would notice that the extreme left and right sides of the setup is just metal and does not give out light. This means that plants at the edges and sides of the tank do not get as much light as those in the middle.

    the one i saw(55w) has a very long bulb.
    Guqin: how does the mist rise from the bottom when all the plant pots/trays are blocking it? also the mist dosen't really rise up right?
