    Hello everyone! I'm very upset cuz' I can't find any light fixture that can hold up to 2 light tubes for my 30 galon aquarium! Every hood only contains a single light bulb when its perfectly clear that I need two kinds of light for my aquarium so that I can have living coral or anemonies.
    Where can I find some? -_-'

    Sincerely,
    Erick

    30 gallon tanks are the worst for lighting, it's impossible to find anything! I bought a two-20watt bulb fluorescent light fixture from Petsmart, and then crammed a single bulb fixture over the tank with it. So there I got about 2-watts/gallon total. I've never tried it, but you could also look around for kits to modify a single-bulb fluorescent fixture to compact fluorescent, that should give you more light (which you will need for a marine tank I imagine)...or switch to a 55 gallon tank and buy those huge 4-foot fluorescent fixtures for much less.

    check out the coralife hoods, the petstore I work at carries several models that would fit most 30's perfectly. Also, places like www.reefgeek.com will sell you T-5 retro kits that are perfect for lighting a saltwater aquarium. get the teklights, or Icecap.
