Another Lighting question? I know ... I know

Just a quick question ...

Will Coralife bulbs fit into a Marineland Eclipse hood? and if they will what would be the best one to get 10,000k or 20,000k and would it be advisable to get 1 10/20,000k and 1 blue actinic?

This is 29 gallon going to be a FOWLR tank ... no SPS or Clams. I plan on housing a couple O. Clowns, a Goby, and a cleaning crew!

Thanks

Jermz79

O.k. I did a search and searched through about 75 pages looking for something specific to my question and couldn't find anything! I found alot on retro-fitting PC to an Eclipse hood .....

BUT what about these bulbs .... they don't look like PC's to me!!!

Looks like a NO bulb. I would think with an Eclipse tank you will be limited by size. Smallest one listed was 18".

Look on Nano-reef.com for Eclipse tank mods. I doubt that it will be just a bulb replacement though. With a FOWLR, it really does not matter though. You don't need a high intensity light for fish.
