lighting....

I just got another light fixture (fluorescent) for my 30 gal. tank to kind of bring a little light to the tank and maybe be able to add a bubble anemone. What would be the best light to put in the two fixtures. I have an atinic light in my old one. I don't really have the money for a t-5 light or MH light. Any suggestions?

TIA

Some PC lighting will be sufficient. You won't be able to keep a BTA under NO lighting.

Agreed that You will not be able to keep the BTA under those lights.

Are there any good deals online that you suggest to get the PC lighting? or maybe a retrofit kit?

i checked out the web site of AH Supply. Thanks! It seems like it would be easier to just by a whole light though. I'll look into it a little bit more. Are there any brands that are better than others as far as the ballasts go or just over all quality?
