Well I am sure this won't be interesting to anyone, but me, but thought I would post it anyway. :hehe:
I was browsing one of the local Tell N Sell papers (classifieds w/ misc. merchandise, autos etc.) and I happened upon an add for some lighting. Apparently the guy has 48", 4 bulb, fluorescent light fixtures (say that 4x's fast). So anyway, he only wants $6.00 a fixture and supposedly they work! He is about an hour away, in a neighboring town, so figured I would ride up there tomorrow or Sat.
Can't help but repeating the "Too good to be true" saying, to myself.
So we shall see.
So if I did get one, that would give me 160 watts over my 55g. Is that a good thing? I know it's better than what I have now.
Only draw back is I will have to make a DIY canopy for them before I could use them. I am so DIY impaired! :roll:

All thought appreciated....
