    Default Guestion about t-5 light


    0 Not allowed!
    I got two of these lights at BigAls last year and now that's it's time to replace the bulb for the first time, it is no longer carried there. I found it at PetsPlace tho.

    I wondered if I could replace the 6700 bulb with a 10000 or do the bulbs have to be what was in the light?

    24 inch, T-5 pink plant bulb and 6700 T-5.

    Looks like this:

    Are replaceable bulbs only found on the web?

    put whatever you want in them as long as the wattage is the same.

    Did they burn out? T5 bulbs don't lose much intensity or spectrum and need only be replaced when they burn out
    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    I understand light - from a science point of view. I've measured light for experiments I've run...I've used various light meters...got a handle on all that...

    But I don't understand light bulbs...SOOOOO confusing...

    ...they scare me...

    Burned out which surprised me as it's my newest light out of two of them and only the one bulb.

    I found replacement bulbs but the length sounds odd. The replacements say they are 23 1/2" but if I measure the bulb only, it's 22 inches. If I go pin to pin, it's 22 1/2". Cheap chinese junk.

    They don't scare me they annoy me. The light says 24". Fact is, it's 22 inches. It's only 24" if you use the extenders on the ends of the lights and pull them all the way out. If a light is 22 1/2", why tell you it's 24"? grrrrr

    OK.........will do.

    I did actually end up finding it at ThatPetPlace. Right under where the light is, it actually directs you to the bulbs needed.

    NOTE: The actual bulb length from pin to pin is 22.25".
    How nice when someone actually tells you the correct length size.

    I just got moisture in my T-5 which caused two of the 3 bulbs to die, the lamp circuits completely frazzled. So I bought a new lamp and when I got it home the protective acrylic lens cover was missing - which was the whole reason my first one died (I cracked it by mistake). And what made it worse was that the LFS knew the cover was missing as they'd stuffed a piece of cardboard into the groove where the lens cover should have been.

    So now I'll have to go back and plead my case. Why can't things just work the first time around !! Grrrr

    You can have it done good, cheap, and fast. Pick any two.

    18g (60L) - Lake Tanganyika tank with 3 Neolamprologus multifasciatus and 13 Neon Tetras.
    10g (38L) - 2 male Betta Splendens (Crowntails) - Optimus Prime & Megatron
    Pond (350-450g) - 9 Goldfish, Comets, Shebumpkins & 2 Yabbies.

    My lights are suffering from being over open water. I really need to get glass tops. For sure they're cheaper than replacing lights.

    Just search 14w t5 bulbs on google. And see what you can come up with.
