-   -   if I leave a bulb out -- damage to anything? (

anonapersona 02-15-2004 02:10 AM

I am considering getitng a 36" 3x30 watts NO flourescent triple bulb strip light for a 38 gallon (36"x12"x19") planted aquarium at an elementary school.

The kids will do some experiments and observations; varied lighting intensities, varied CO2 injection, varied fertilizers.

If I get the triple tube All Glass strip, and leave one or two bulbs out of the fixture, will it damage the remaining bulb or the ballast? Or do I need to have a variety of different strip lights available to change the lighting?

It'll be fine. I do it all the time.
