The only thing that stinks right now is that the fixture that came with it did not work good. Having to play with the switch and wiggle bulbs is not my idea of safe. So after dismantling the fixture I found that it was so badly corroded from salt that I am afraid to use it. Mostly because of the ballast they looked like wet salt crystals when I opened it up. Since the ballasts are right where the vents are and the salt splash went through there is ate them up. So I am thinking if I can find a t5 ballast or t5 shop light fixture and just mount it inside this fixture. There are a few standard four foot shop fixtures that would fit inside if I can't find a t5 fixture.

Aquariums should smell like a pond. Just like where the fish come from.
