Lighting Question


I have a 35 gallon hexagon aquarium, I have changed the original light that came with the aquarium to a nutri grow aquarium plant light (18 inches), I was wondering, is there a way to retrofit this so that I could have two lights (18 inches) each? If so, great, has anyone done this before, would appreciate any advice!

You might be able to buy a double bulb fixture. You could just gut the fixture and install something of your own make.

What is the width of a single side of the tank? There is a 96 watt quad bulb which is about 4 inches wide and 18 inches long and would let you grow just about anything you'd like. (HelloLights.com) You would have to build a hood to accommidate the reflector and bulb but it would get the trick done.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".
