So I fell into the Dollar Gallon days at Petco, and walked home w/ a 40 Gallon Breeder to go with my 36G and 65G. Sadly, I did not have any lighting, and the SO would not go for me buying a 3rd Current Sat Plus Pro in 3 months
So, I had to come up with a quick solution to my lighting issue, I knew I wanted to have plants in this tank too
~$50 worth of parts from Lowes (I am sure you could get these cheaper else where)
Lamp holders = $7 * 4 = $28
2 23w CFL Daylight bulbs = $10 * 2 = $20
1/2 Tubing 4ft = $2
Fittings = $2.24
So here is my solution 4 23w CFL Daylight 6700k Bulbs 92watts of fake sunshine! With this I could technically do 8 23w CFL Bulbs (obviously to much light). There will still be some improvements done to this, wiring the lights together so i only use 1 plug to power it up, painting the frame black.
So what do you think, opinions, improvements?
