I could use some input. I have a 6g Halogen Edge, haven't ever set it up. I'm looking to upgrade the lighting and wondered what the current options are. I kinda wanna keep the DIY and expense to a minimum and I don't need high light. I just want a bit more light and to get rid of the heat and yellow color of the halogens and the poor coverage of them.
I forget if these come with MR11 of MR16, but what is the purpose for using the ones that fit improperly? I believe I've seen both models at Home Depot, can't remember if they were LED, but I believe they were something other than halogen. Do you get decent coverage just using these and not adding a CFL?
I saw a youtube thread of a mod where they replace the 21 LED lamp with the 42, but do these bars work on the old halogen model? Are they even available anymore? The link posted on youtube about the mod was for Amazon and they no longer have them.
Anyone selling kits in the US? I saw one that looked nice, but it was in the UK.
I guess my last option would be to de-lid it. I kinda wanted to keep the slick look, but I'm now considering it. Anyone's tank break from that? What light would then be a good one to go with?
