im soo annoyed. :twisted: one of my light tubes on my 'I' Bar has just gone bang sending shards into the tank. luckily there are no occupants at the moment so i fished all of the pieces out with tweezers and nets.
I have one cheap light tube and one more expensive tube which is a sylvania Grolux and guess which tube just went bang...... typical. :twisted:

i guess it must have been a faulty tube becuase it had only been on for less than 2 hours. i will have to rely on my 2 30w T8's for now untill i can get a new tube. im hoping the light company might replace it for me especially as it went bang (literally) so early on.

Sounds a bit bazaar!

Must have been a faullty one unless extremes in temperature caused it? (but not that effect after a couple of hours of usage).
