you can get converters but they arent meant for aquarium grade tubes only for domestic tubes, i looked into it about a year ago for a marine tank and the folk on the forum i used explained why it wouldnt work but ive forgotten why that is :oops: , im not very technically minded.

*edit* aquarium tubes are HO tubes, domestic tubes are NHO and have different power requirements, this company have made a unit suitable for aquarium tubes but its pricey in my opinion http://www.marine-lighting.co.uk/ its about 80 pounds for the converter and and a 2 foot tube and assuming they still do them you would have to send them an email requesting it, their price may have come down by now i guess.

link to the old thread testing them http://www.ultimatereef.net/forums/show ... =converter
