15 Gallon 24" Tank Light Unit

HELP


I cant find a 2x15 watt light unit for my 24" Aquarium. I want to have 2wpg but cant find any lightning units for a 24" hood.

All I can find is single unit with a 15watt bulb which is what i already have!!


Any help!!

You can get a 36W retrofit kit - This is an example:
36 or 55 watt Bright Kits

If you are handy, you might also be able to put an additional 15W unit in your existing hood.

Can I not just buy a hood that fits my aquarium and comes with light unit ready to install two 15watt bulbs?

It may be possible to buy a strip light but the power compact kit makes a very professional looking end product using your present hood as the mounting for the new light fixture. I have used 3 of these kits now on different sized tanks and they all are very nice end products that give truly impressive lighting.
