What size tank is it? I'm guessing a 2.5g. As far as I know there are very few light systems that are 12" long. Your best bet would be a Retrofit kit from AHsupply.

Not sure if the coralife mini would fit the bill but I'll suggest it anyway.

Aquatraders.com has a mini fixture too for cheap, you'll need to replace the bulb though.

Best of Luck :Proud:

quick fix is a desk lamp with a screw in cf. I am trying to make one out of a bayo brand 13 watt cf, no problems but no time either
