    Default LED light for 5.5G


    0 Not allowed!
    Hey guys/girls,

    The cheapo Beamswork fixture on Floyd's tank is dying, and I need to get another one for that tank

    The last (super) cheapo fixture I bought for a tank this size was this one, on Lao's tank

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It's OK, I guess, but that tank has issues with algae/diatoms/etc, that may or may not be related to the fixture...I don't think it's the culprit, though...that tank had issues with the original LED (the one dying on the other 5.5g)

    Are there any other inexpensive ones out there you guys have had decent success with?

    Please exclude the Finnex Stingray from any suggestions, already tried that one, and didn't like it

    Thanks for any/all replies

    I saw one that fluval makes at pet smart, but I didn't see the price on it. Probably $$$$

    Lol, If this becomes my name for awhile people will think I'm in witness protection

    You ever think about trying something like this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NCUPRKU..._DJUICb1R8RG8B

    They make some pretty cheap, only think is you'd have to make a bracket to hold it up.

    You aren't?............

    Yeah, I've explored alternatives, but none feasible for this 5.5G setup...it's actually in my daughter's CLOSET in her BR, that we removed the door from, and made a little desk/homework station setup...her clothes are stored elsewhere

    Not to say this "closet" is the tidiest, by any means, lol...but there's a shelf with room for a 5.5G, it was a stipulation when she decided to rescue a betta or two

    Sis just got one of these for her rimless 20 gallon cube she is setting up, the C series (for clip). The A series may work for the 5.5 as it states for 40 cm tanks which is about 16" Just may take a bit to get to you as its seems to be available overseas only.
