The Elusive Hampton Bay Desk Lamp - Where to Find?

Many searches have turned up advice on using a Hampton Bay Desk Lamp for a Nano tank setup, yet all of my searches at Home Depot haven't turned up any of the lamps that I have seen pictured here (most posts being several years old).

Any suggestions for lighting for my new 12" cube?

try an office max/depot, they would probably have a variety of desk lamps that may work.

I picked up one at Home Depot just last week. All 4 HD within 30 minutes of here have had them in stock the last few times I've gone.

I know this won't help in Florida.
Menard's in Lansing, Michigan carries a Hampton model that uses the same bulb.
Home Depot in Okemos, Michigan carries the Hampton light usually specified.

I've been looking but it seems that Home Depots in Canada don't carry this item. I'll pick one up when I visit the States some time.

After searching several of the local hardware stores, I located a light at one of the local Home Depots. Although I wasn't able to find any of the older models found within the older pictures, but I was able to find this ONE full spectrum florescent day light; and it does appear that they only sell this light in stores, not online.

Anyhow, I just started a journal on the following tank, so if you want to see a picture of the light in use, go here:
