Suggestions for T8 24" bulb replacement for Eclipse 3 hood by Victor Martinez
Hi. I'm thinking of replacing the OEM bulbs in my Eclipse 3 hood. Does anybody have any recommendations? It's for a 20g long tank, heavily planted with fluorite substrate. It's currently doing very well. Do they sell bulbs with a built-in reflector? Cheers. Victor
