    Those are the weed growing cheaper style of lights.

    Note, you can make your own DIY hood and chose electronic dimmable ballast with T5's.
    DIY wiring retro kit and a nice tacked together thin 1/4 to 3/8" thick popular wood, painted and sealed, will do well with a simple vent design.

    See the old 75 Gallon I derimmed and had in Florida.

    Reefer, Hooch, whacky tobacky, Cannabis sativa etc.

    It really depends on what type of aquarium bulbs you and your eyes prefer.
    I like the reds I get from the latest 120 Gallon post, but that was on my 180 Gallon.

    I do like that ships in discreet box. :biggrin-new:

    All weed growing lights my man.

    Nice but hard to put in a hood with the top plug in for me anyway.
