    Good afternoon, all. I am a new member and would like to ask for some expert advice please. I need to replace the fluorescent lights in the cover and would like to know how to remove the cover to change the lights. All advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi Carol,

    It's all put together with screws.. so get yourself a decent-size phillips screwdriver and you should be fine.

    From there it's just a matter of adding a bit of elbow grease.

    Hi erratiC and thank you for your advice.

    We actually thought that the lid could be removed and took out the main screws that attach the lid to the tank but no go - maybe we needed to use the elbow grease then but didn't want to break anything.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Afinta,

    Thanks for that. Our stoppers have two little screws and our smallest screwdriver is too big and the screws are are really tight. Will try again later when we have had a chance.

    Thanks again.

    Thank you, guys, for your assistance! Tank lid removed and cleaned and light replaced. Now just have to figure out how to change the fan/s which are a little noisy but that's a job for another time.
