My 38 gal
tank is 36 " long. It came with an All-glass hood and 24" florescent light. I wanted to get up to the 2 watt per gallon so that I can keep real plants in the aquarium. I went out and bought a Cora-Life VHO
fluorescent light rated at 75 watts (24 "). I out it in and it seems to work.I see now that there are actual VHO
ballasts available. Do I need to change my ballast to a VHO
ballast for the light to work properly? The package the light came in made no mention of that and that it would fit a regular fluorescent fixture.
