    Hello All, it's been a while since I've written here. I could use some help. I have a 8 year old Aquatic Life Light T5 HO 4-Lamp 36-Inch unit. About 2-3 times a week one bank (or both) won't come on. Cycling through the power (on/auto/off) will eventually get the bank on. Per tech support...

    Hi everyone!! I have decided to add some live plants to my 55 gal angel tank! I have added Eco complete substrate. My husband surprised me with upgraded lighting for my tank!

    Got the Freshwater Aquatic Life T5 HO 2 bulb 39w fixture. One of the bulbs went in one week amazing, needless to say I got two new bulbs from the vendor as both bulbs have to be working for the fixture to work. If one bulb doesn't work both bulbs won't work.

    I'm considering getting a Hagen GLO T5 HO fixture for my 55g. Do I have to use the GLO bulbs, or can I use a different brand? If I could get a different brand, what would you recommend? Also, I noticed these bulbs tend to have high K-ratings. Will that be a problem for my plants?
