After reading through this forum, I am now aware that the light that came with my 26G tank (30 X 10 X 18) is not good enough for a planted tank. I understand that most folks are happy with AH Supply's kit, I don't want to build a canopy. I also am not sure if my strip light will be able to take a retrofit (it's really crappy). to my question: Is there a pre-built light system out there that will not kill my budget? I saw this http://www.petsolutions.com/Current+USA+Satellite+Powercompact+Lights-I-42901001-I-C-1-C-.aspx
but I think it's meant more for a saltwater set up. Would it be possible to just replace the bulbs to make it suitable for my needs? Any suggestions? Thanks.
