    Default Small Tank Lighting

    I've got a 10 gallon tank in my bedroom that I'd like to upgrade the lighting on. It currently has one of those double fixtures with the screw in lightbulbs. I'm not a huge fan of them and I'd like to upgrade, whether it be to LED or T5. It's a planted freshwater tank. I did some searching on ebay and came up with this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/T5-Dual-20-6...item19d88e22b3 which seems to be fairly decent. Good wattage and designed for planted freshwater. Has anyone had any experience with that company or something similar?
    Look forward to hearing from you all.

    This is the oddysea model that aquatraders sells. I have the 48" model and its been working quite well for over a year now.

    Actually, if you replace those screw in bulbs with the new CFL bulbs, using as close to 6700K as you can find that fixture will work great.

    The bulbs are cheaper to replace and overall will give you what you are looking for

    Topdog sellers has really poor reviews. Buy in the US at Aquatraders:

    Their LED's are only good for reef tanks - color is wrong.
