i tihnk i might just skip lighting for now and stick with what i have. unless my lfs has a really good deal on lights maybe i will just upgrade the bubl to the marine one, and then if i wanted to later on i could just get better ones. i guess i would be ok with now colour. do they have plants u can buy for saltwater or no.

Depending on your hood, retrofiting a new PC strip won't be hard at all. I do not think you will find anything locally for $50.00 CND though.

Incandescent = screw in bulb (mogul base)
Fluorescent = pin mounted bulb.

Cheers
Steve
