First of all I would like to apologize if the question I am asking is posted in some obvious place I wasn't able to find. Unfortunately my LFS
has left me in a bit of a bind and I haven't been able to find much help by searching.
The short version is, I finally lost the battle with my aquapod hood. With a dying fan controller causing a cascade of other issues resulting in a cracked lens (due to heat) and a corrosion problem (due to.. well, salt water) , I am down to only my actinic right now. I went into the LFS
for advice about 5 days ago and decided that it was time for an upgrade. They said they were out of what i needed but would have one on the truck for me on Thursday. In the meantime, I borrowed the CF
daylight from my freshwater tank every other day to try to minimize the damage a bit.
Here we are on Thursday and the gents didn't know who I was, didn't have my light, and weren't able to give me any kind of assurances.
So, I am going to have to order a new system directly it seems. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get a clear idea of what I am looking for. I "thought" I was in for a 24" t5 ho
. Being that it is a 24gal aquapod though, its only 19 3/4" wide. Will I be able to make this fit? I hate to bother everyone with a simple hardware question but I am out of time and need to order this today before I have to leave for a few days. Making matters worse, I have a Theory of Computation final at 8am tomorrow so my time for trolling the internet tonight searching for a solid answer is limited.
I would love to hear some advice on what I should get and from whom. I would say I have medium-high light requirements. Not enough to need a MH
, but an upgrade from the stock is probably well in order.
Thanks in advance!
