Yeah my focus won't be on lighting at all. It's just so I can see into the tank and grow some even low light is fine....trying to find a cheap option...maybe something at walmart or home depot even.

Did you use an intake strainer along with the u tube for the ac20? or did you just stick the sponge onto the u tube. I tried it with the strainer intake tube and it's a bit too long.....did you jack it up somehow?
