 Hi!  
 
 Am  desperately  looking  for  light  fixtures  for  my  3  ft  tank  (3ftX1.5ftX1ft).  I  specifically  need  a  2ft  long  double  tube  holder.  I  would  like  each  socket  of  the  holder  to  hold  a  2ft  Hitachi  tube  of  20W.  
 
 I  had  been  to  Excel  traders  on  Dispensary  Road  today,  and  they  didn't  have  it.  Are  there  any  places  I  could  go  to?  Any  information  in  this  regard  would  be  appreciated.  I  have  a  hood,  and  cannot  do  without  one.

 Hi,
 
 Phillips,  Genelux  and  osram  make  what  u  are  looking  for,  try  the  BLR  yellow  pages  for  heir  dealers,  call  them  and  they  should  be  able  to  provide  the  same  to  u.
 
 Look  into  the  lighting  a  little,  the  2  ft  tubes  give  u  a  total  a  about  36W  of  lighting,  which  is  quite  low  for  the  tank  size  you  mentioned  (if  you  want  to  grow  plants)  I  think  a  single  70W  MH  lamp  on  a  pendant  holder  kept  about  15-16  inches  above  the  surface  of  the  water  would  work  very  well.
 
 Cheers  and  all  the  best  
 Arvind

 Hi  Jenny,
 
 You  may  consider  CFLs  instead  of  tubelight.  Try  to  get  fittings  which  use  mirror  optics.  This  will  have  maximum  efficiency.

 Hi!!
 
 Thank  you  for  your  valuable  information.
 
 Arvind...  I  have  a  whole  lot  of  plants,  and  yes..  I  do  need  a  lot  of  lighting.  Shall  look  up  the  yellow  pages  too.  I  am  just  not  too  big  on  heat-generating  lights.  
 
 As  for  the  pendulum  holder  that  you  suggested,  I  shall  look  into  that  also.  How  is  the  light  suspended?  Must  I  have  provisions  on  the  celing  for  this  kind  of  lighting?  Have  you  come  across  that  holder/stand    which  can  be  used  instead  of  a  hood?  I  guess  Boyu  makes  them.  What's  your  take  on  this?
 
 Although  I  prefer  the  conventional  hood  anytime,  I  guess  I  must  make  allowances  for  my  plants.
 
 Jenny

 Hi  Jenny,  
 
 Suspending  the  MH  lamp  over  the  tank  without  a  hood  will  not  create  any  heat  problems,  heat  dissipation  increases  phenomenally  when  a  hood  is  absent.  
 
 The  pendent  fixtures  are  available  at  all  modern  stores  who  cater  for  lighting.  You  dont  need  to  do  much  for  the  pendant  to  be  fixed,  u  could  have  a  hook  fixed  in  the  ceiling  or  have  a  free  standing  stand  made  by  a  metalworker.  
 
 As  Ravi  pointed  out,  CFL's  are  a  good  solution  but  you  would  have  to  use  at  least  4  x  15W  CFL's  (bare  minimum)  6  x  15W  would  be  better.  The  heat  generated  by  4  or  6  CFL's  is  enormous  in  a  closed  hood,  with  summer  approaching,  I  don't  think  that  is  a  good  idea.  As  compared  with  MH  CFl's  would  not  be  that  cost  effective  (15w  CFL  approx  240/-  each  whereas  a  70W  MH  will  be  approx  1200-1300/-)  
 
 I  have  never  used  a  boyu  hood,  so  can't  say  much  about  it  -  but  look  at  it  this  way,  a  lot  of  our  plants  flower  emersed,  with  a  hood  one  can  never  enjoy  that  sight  (In  my  opinion  crypt's  have  the  most  beautiful  flowers  and  they  appear  emersed)
 
 For  a  lush  planted  tank  you  should  go  through  the  posts  on  PMDD  (Fertilising)  
 
 Cheers!!!!!!!!
 Arvind

 A  Boyu  light  hood  can  be  used  as  additional  /  extra  lighting  for  planted  tanks  and  in  no  way  prevents  plants  flowering  emersed.  
 
 It  also  does  not  prevent  you  from  enjoying  the  sight  of  plants  flowering.
 
 Its  clip  on  design  enables  you  to  remove  it  easily  when  you  feel  that  the  extra  light  is  not  required.

 Hi...
           If  you  are  looking  for  lighting,  you  could  look  up  'Mahveer  Electric'  at  'Chickpet'...They  are  distributors  of  phillip,osram  etc.and  suply  most  of  the  shops  around  with  the  same.  You  should  be  able  to  get  the  best    deal  from  them.You  will  have  to  decide  as  to  which  light  you  looking  at,  cause  they  will  have  no  detailed  info  about  the    lights.Most  of  us  members  have  sourced  lights  from  them  and  they  are  very  aware  that  we  use  their  lights  for  aquarium  use..

 Very Happy
