going low tech


Is there any suggestions for a low tech fixture? It will go on my 20 long and needs to be 30in. Or is it possible to just replace the bulb with a lower wattage bulb and have the same effect? Currently it is a 1x55 watt AH Supply Kit.

Thanks,
Neil

Get the 30" Coralife 2x18W T5NO fixture.

Can I possibly buy that AHS setup from you?

You cannot change the bulb to get a lower wattage. Bulbs have to match ballast specifications or the bulb won't fire.

I wish they could.
