you can get it off [Ebay Link Removed] search "3014 led t5 or t8 bulb". they have 24", 36" and 48". don't get the warm white. get the pure white. it's about 6000k to 7000k.

each bulb come with an ac adapter inside that runs at 120v, which goes directly to your ac.
you can open the bulb and take out the hard led strip and attach it to an heatsink. you can get those off homedepot.

Is it really as good as the Ray 2's? I have a Ray 2 on my tank along with a dual T-5 fixture. I want to buy another Finnex, but if this works, i'll do this!
