Just a quick light question...
 
I was just thinking, what is the difference between a ceiling mounted fluorescent strip lights and what we use in the lids of our tanks? Other than the metal casing of course... :mrgreen:

Thanks!!! :D

Nothing except the color of the bulb. I use 4 regular flourescent bulbs, 2 being 65K daylight bulbs and 2 Actinic o3 bulbs.

Ah, so we're paying a premium for those external ballast & starter units then?? 8O

Although the pet shop I was at yesterday has a few 2nd hand ones in a "Everything 3.99 this box" for sale, might make setting up my river tank a little bit cheaper.... :mrgreen:
