Bulbs keep blowing
My nephew has been showing interest in my planted tanks recently and i decided to keep my eye out for a 10 gallon setup. I found a 10 gallon marineland eclipse, its perfect for what he needs. It did not come with the CFL bulbs so i went and bought 2 new Marineland bulbs from the LFS. 2 days later one of the bulbs (over the HOB) stopped working. Im guessing it was due to the splash from the HOB filter. I took it back and exchanged the bulb, filled the tank up to the rim so it wouldnt splash as much, but the same thing happened today. I cant move the HOB because the hood only allows it to be on one side, otherwise i would have placed it in the middle of the 2 bulbs. How can i create a "splashguard" ?
