Interpet Power Compact - Replacement tubes?

Steve Smith

19 Jul 2007
Leamington Spa, UK.
I have an 18w PC in my little nano and I could only get a "beauty" tube for it, and quite frankly it sucks! I've been looking around and found a Tri-Plus but interpet tubes for the 18w seem quite limited.

I've been hunting about and found that the endcap is a 2G11 fitment. Looking on Lampspecs, I see they carry a range of 2G11 tubes. I just wondered if anyone has used any other tubes, other than the Interpet own brand?

I'm also thinking of adding a second 18w unit. Out of these tubes on lampspecs, what would people recommend? (I'm thinking 2 of the 865 daylight tubes?)

If it has any bearing, this is on a 27 litre Aqua40 tank, which I'm in the process of setting up for shrimp. It'll be growing mosses, crypts and ferns, so low light. I will either dose Easycarbo or might even venture to pressurised CO2. With that in mind, a second light unit might not be necessary.

Thanks in advance :)
