Okay, LIGHTS, I'm still undecided haha, I'm bad when it comes to these kinds of things, and tend to over think everything..
1) rapid LED
- $245 for the kit itself
2) Do away with the hood, and use a normal panel type fixture, which can be found for about $130 or so.
3) Do away with the hood, and use par38 bulbs, I would assume I'd need two. These aren't necessarily cheap either, normally around $80 per bulb, plus finding two fixtures I can buy and attach.
At this point I'm more leaning towards option 2. I've done some sketches (I am far from an artist) to show how I'd do the 2nd and 3rd option.
What are y'alls opinion of what I should do? $245 for the rapidLED just seems like such a bad deal.. On a brighter note I picked up a bag of sand for the tank today
