I have two Marineland fixtures. A single bright and a double bright. The double is better on live plants but still only considered medium light

Not sure if you were responding to my post or not. If you go to www.ecoexotic.com you can check out the lighting there or they sell stunner strips on amazon.com and at other pet store websites so they aren't hard to get. They have variety of colors and I use 3 on my tank. 8000k white led, 12k white/445nm blue, & 12k white/magenta. Each stunner for me costs $80. But I also needed 36inch stunners so it depends how long your tank is. I'm pretty sure they go up to 48 inches.

You can also get them on amazon.com or other pet store websites.

I was looking at the stunner strips.... Do I take florescent bulbs out of hood and use the strips there? Was trying to figure out how they are used... Would be great if I can somehow use them with hood since I have an all oak set up.... Thanks

You should be able to just take your old bulbs out and anything holding them in then drill in the stunner strips. They make a hood for the strips but not sure if it would go well with your tank.

You can get fancy with the strips and hook em up to a controller to replicate sunrise, sunset, moon cycles even cloud cover or thunderstorms.

I'm going to check them out as well. Hopefully can gelt them in Canada for that price. Thanks
