Lighting upgrade for a fluval edge in the UK?
I'm looking to upgrade the lighting in my 23L fluval edge, as I wanted to have a heavily planted tank.
I've done a fair bit of research on this, I've upgraded my bulb fixings for the larger ones to house bigger led bulbs, and I was hoping to add the popular mini fluorescent bulb in the gap between the hood and light arm.
The thing is, I've searched everywhere and I can't find a supplier in the UK that makes a bulb slim and small enough, that is daylight kelvin!
What are people doing here? Buying a US bulb and converter? Another type of bulb?
A thought I had was to make an extension of the light arm using fibreglass and house another pair of MR16 bulbs. What are people's thoughts on this? Less effective than a small fluorescent?
Can anyone help?
I have the same issue. Has anyone found a solution?
Saying that I have upgraded to MR16s with about 640 Lumins at 6500k and they seem to have been ok with fertilisers and Flourish Excel.
I found this one in the end:
Good size, light and price. still going strong!
