Please advise re retrofitting Eclipse 12


Hi, hope someone can give me some advise regarding retrofitting my Eclipse 12. The Eclipse 12 hood comes with a 13 watt bulb and I would like to increase the lighting for my tank. What can I do to accomplish this? Are there kits I can purchase to retrofit the hood?

Which part are you wanting to retrofit?

Lights can be bought from http://ahsupply.com/
The filter can be upgraded, but it requires cutting the back wall.

Do a search for eclipse 12 upgrade, there are many post on the subject

Default Thanks

Thanks for your help. I did a search as you suggested and I think the Sunpaq kit may do the job.
