Okay so i searched back posts for info on diy
lighting and hoods and now i'm even more confused. I have a 55 gal
. tank with the standard 2x24" hoods with about 15w each. I want to have about 3 wpg
or more so that makes it a total of about 165w. I am so confused though i don't even know where to begin. Am i right to understand that when i do build my diy
project that i can use just a "regular" bulb from a hardware store and that it does not have to be one of the expensive ones from fish stores? Any help would be great!
