the t5? Well, if you wanna get rid of it, i'll be more than happy to give repairing it a shot. Norm output lights do have usefulness, they run my 60g
Sounds good. I've replaced ballasts before on a couple t8 fixtures with no problems, but I can't remember if home depot has any t5's the size the fixture would need. I might give it one more try at fixing it before the meet, but I imagine even if I find a replacement ballast for it, the cost would be not worth it in my mind because I already spent so much on it. Plus I'm broke haha.
On a better note. My brother's graduation present to me is HIS old car. Luckily for me "old" is a '05 mazda 3. Now begins the process of finding a well paying job so I can afford car insurance and all the gas I'm going to be using driving around to all the fish stores I haven't been to yet.
