faster if you do a google for:T-5 Aquraium fixtures
Look for fixtures that carry ATI, Gueissman (sp) or Icecap bulbs.
An 8 bulb fixture would be more then enough...pricey!!!
Sorry to say that most ready to use fixtures are cheaply made for the price we pay for them. I'm talking about end caps so look for a fixture with waterproof endcaps. I don't think they make an 8 lamp fixture with waterproof endcaps. The waterproof endcaps take up to much space,

You can have some clams. I had a squamosa clam for 4 yrs and now have a derasa clam that`s doing pretty good. Just cant have any of the high light clams.
