I want to upgrade the cheap integrated hood/light combos that came with my aquariums.
My tanks are all small (20g is the biggest), and they're mostly non-standard shapes/sizes, so I'm not going find off-the shelf hoods for most of them. And I have inverts, so I need to replace them with something that doesn't have the openings for the HOB
filters at the top. I'll probably just make templates and get glass or plexiglass cut. But what about the lights? I'd like to find something that looks cool enough that I don't have to hide it under a hood, but that's still good for plants and illuminates the tank nicely.
I know lights can get insanely pricey. But does anyone have any web links I should look at? Favorite product lines, or even photos that might give me some ideas about cool ways to set up the lighting?
