I have a thirty gallon tall eclipse tank.
In it I have
2 small angelfish
3 small gourami
7 neon tetra
6 harlequin tetra
2 corry cats
and 1 small common pleco and 2 assassin snails.

I have a few simple plants like elodia, amazon sword, and a couple unknown. They are not doing so well.

I think my lighting is the problem. One of the lights in my tank will not work. The other strip works great, but the top one just flickers and is very dim. Has anyone had this problem? Do you know how to fix it? Can I get another lighting system and mount it inside my hood??

also, its 2 watts per gallon, correct?

Thanks for any help.

Usually you can replace the ballast in a hood with out too many problems. Some even use a standard ballast, and you only need to get one just like it.
