Replacement light for Fluval Chi


Hi everyone. I really like this site because everybody's seem very knowledgeable about fish keeping. I think this is a good place to ask my question.

I have a Fluval Chi 5 Gallon Aquarium Kit for five months, everything's working fine until this week. The LED lamps under the integrated filter/low voltage light cube had stopped working. I don't want to spend $50 to replace the whole cube since the filtration system still works.

Is there a cheap yet reliable light I can buy to attach under the cube (where the original LED lamps were)? There are only Java Ferns and Java Moss in my tank, so I think low light would do.

Please help thanks!

Here's the pic of the integrated filter/low voltage light cube:

Contact Hagen (the parent company) and ask for a replacement part. They should have one for cheap and it will be less stressful than doing a custom mod.

I know the fluval edge has replacement part. You can also try ebay, I always seem to find fluval tanks there.

Thanks for the suggestion. I contacted Hagen today and the service rep told me since I only have the aquarium kit for five months, I can just email or fax them my proof of purchase and they'll send me a new filter/light cube. Pretty nice customer service!

Heyy, I came across this thread while googling.
My light on my Fluval Chi tank broke literally minutes ago...
I saw this post and went on to Hagan's website but there doesn't seem to be a way to contact them other than through the FAQ facility.

Do you mind telling me how you got through?
Maybe I'm just blind and missing something. :L

Thanks!
