Imi Statue You might read these threads before purchasing:

Then just do a search using the internal engine for "CFL" without the quotes to get more.

Hoppy Home Depot now has 48 inch long, 2 bulb T5HO strip lights (no reflectors), and might also have it in a 24 inch length. That would be perfect for many DIY lights.

livingword26 I also depends on the depth of the tank, whether 2 x t-8's would be medium light or not:

GeToChKn I would go for a DIY CFL fixture instead of T5's or T8. They are easy to do, cheaper than doing a T8 setup and bulbs are way cheaper as well. I have 3x13w CFL bulbs over my 20gal, and plant growth has exploded compared to what it was before.

proaudio55 ummmm, what length are you thinking? Because you can get ready made 4' long garage / shop lights fairly inexpensively.
