AR980 light conversion
Well after searching high and low for if on how to replace the ar980 stock T8's I decided to take a gamble.My goal was to have the tank look totally stock at first looks .
after gutting the tanks hood of its 3 t8's I thought I should share it so others could see I can be done
I only need low light so at this stage 2x t8ho 39w should be ok ( I could get 2 more in where the old filter was
itll be home to these two
since they paired up they dont like there friends
after striping the .... well everything I also cut the screw lugs for the bulb tray down by 15mm
sanded bulb tray and installed bulb holders , tray went back in upside down to act as a bit of a reflecter for now . Now I just need to run cables and put it back on
hope this is of use to someone , ill post once its all set up
