im pretty sure you need a whole new hood to get the better lights :/ i know its a pain. cant wait to see pics
I ordered a saltwater complete testing kit today as well as a aqua clear 70 filter. Buying things slowly right now.
This weekend I am going to sand and paint the stand so I can get started on the actual tank. I am so excited!
I will post the before and after. My stand is a oak color right now, but my mom wants me to paint it a funky color to make it stand out. So, I will see what she picks.
Speaking of a new hood, I just found out that my hood is not working and it is not the bulb. The actual hood is 16.5'' long, and I am having a hard time finding a hood that size. Most hoods I am finding at 20'' long, and since I have a hex shape, it needs to be less than 18'' long.
Any recommendations on a hood that will house better lights so I don't have to buy a new hood again. Might as well buy the hood I need later now, as long as I can find the hood with the right size.
