Default New Odyssea quad T5 HO Fixture

I just received and installed my new Odyssea quad lamp T5 HO fixture. Came fully installed with external ballasts and separate cords for each pair of lamps. Cam fully assembled with 4 bulbs 6500k(all aquatic plant suitable).

Easy to unpack and setup.

the only surprise was there are no switches for the bulbs. Just separate cords.

So far so good.

HOpe the A/C in my house can keep up.

bob

bought off ebay $108.95 no sales tax; free shipping.

aquatraders.com they have came along way in inprovements... i had a 4 bulb power compact light fixture that i got from odyssea and it only lasted 8 months. then i went to t5 ho. for the price these fixtures are i think they are worth getting...

speaking of light fixtures I was the 380/75 petsmart and i notice aquaeon light fixtures and light bulbs. when did that company started making plant light fixtures, and plant bulbs... it looks like they just copied the slimline model of coralife...

depends on what you want to grow but a 20 long is shallow so it would take much light to reach the bottom that a one normal out put t5 should do it... i'd say 36 and raise it around a 6 to 12 inchs from the top of the tank....

I think I like 36" too because I don't think I can put 24" on top of the tank, but right now have to find a stand first Huhuhuhuhuhuh

thank for advice Joe

you could always build one and remember that a 20g long will fit a 29g stand same length and width.
