Cheap ways to get more light?
I'm new to this forum. I have a 5.5 gallon All Glass tank. I originally bought it at Walmart (the really cheap set up), but I have since replaced that hood with the "deluxe" All Glass model, which has a separate cover and strip light. It still has an incandescent light socket, but I am using a small screw-in flourescent (11 watts?). I currently have Anubias nana, Crypt wendtii, and an unknown small sword for plants.
I'd really like more light (and more plants) but my husband is sick of me spending money on my tanks- I have two others, both planted. I've seen instructions in old posts here about how to put a second light socket in All Glass hoods, but I'm not sure if this refers to the really cheap standard hoods or the somewhat less cheap "deluxe" hoods. Anybody know? And can you explain how to do this for the DIY inept?
