    hello i have a juwell 320 litre tank off ebay, and the lights don't work they are 39w i bar 120cm. so replacement needed.
    1, do upgrade to juwel 54w ibar? will this be enough for plant growth?
    2 replace with 39w ibar?
    3 replace with arcadia 54w ibar?
    4 which are best tubes
    5 any other ideas?

    the tubes work on my mates tank changed fuse so i guess the ballast dead . i will be using pressurised co2 and will hope to grow hc cuba etc. regards jon

    It could be the fluorescent starter thingy... The little white cap. That would be the cheapest thing to try first, as they cost a few £ literally.
