    Sunlight Supply Post Tek-light

    Since the Sunlight Supply Tek-Light fixtures are discontinued, I am on the market for a good no-nonsense T5HO fixture that will grow plants. Has anyone tried or used this fixture:

    They have a 5 year ballast warranty.

    Here is another company that is American made:

    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.

    Tom, what do you mean weed growing style of lights?

    I am curious though what, if you were/are using T5HO light what bulbs you would recommend?

    Thanks,

  5. Nice grow rooms also.

    Thanks,
    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.

    All weed growing lights my man.

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