    Anyone know where I can get a reasonable priced around 20-24" over tank luminaire, I had seen some cheapish ones on ebay but have lost the link, I have found some but no the one I wanted, i would like it to have half decent lighting :D

    Any help would be great

    Thanks

    I'm using the Arcadia 60cm 4 x 24w HO T5. It's great, but not the cheapest. What's your budget?

    Here's a link, but not below £50 I'm afraid! I don't think you'll find the Arcadia units anywhere for anything near that price!

    The seller that I think you are referring to is EQJ Trading. I've got mine from them for 50 quid including changing the tubes and postage. Too bad the unit didn't come with a hingeable stand. You have to either push the unit backwards or totally remove it to access the tank.

    Ive got one of these light kits and got another on the way cant fault them. You do have to chose your moment when bidding though, in order to get a bargain.

    Note that the tubes are only 8w each, 24w total.

    These are great light units for the money you pay, I have 3 of these now. Just bear in mind the legs that come with the 3x24W units are practically useless rubbish, they do come with a hanging set though which is good quality. I wouldn't let that put you off though, hard to beat the price.

    Yea i've got a 3x24w and also a 3x39w, can't fault either of them really, they both work well on their respective tanks, they look pretty good, and the guy that sells them in Germany got both of mine to me within 5 or 6 days from paying for them. :D

    I have an Arcadia 4 x 24watt T5 luminaire. Not as cheap as the ebay items but top quality, highly recommended!

    managed to get one of the 2ft 48w ones from the German seller for £16.00 + postage, so can't complain.

    Cheers
