Note, these are old and not in perfect condition...
They are just dust collectors and maybe somebody got a use for them

Price, Whateva you are willing to pay or give or trade. Not accepting any Mother-in-Laws.

24W T5 dual Oddesea unit. Globes are super old, one globe is dead. Arms are rusted as this light used to be a sump light.

Next, quad 54w unit. One ballast is dead. Rest of unit actually in a "good" condition.

Quad 39w T5, Both ballast are dead. I took the unit apart to fix it up, but never done that.Might be able to build a led unit from the housing.
Got glass cover as well.

A marine weed farm. Using an old 500L tank as refugium. Trowing out a 5L bucket of caulerpa monthly. Upgraded that to 2* 30W LED spotlights. The big 54W quad unit was used on that tank.

The 36W quad, was used on my frag tank, until its ballasts blew thanks to Eskom.

The 24W dual was used as sump light under my tank. Not using that sump at all anymore since connecting up the 500L refugium tank. And using 10W led spots in sump areas now.

Only florescent tube left in my house is the kitchen light. OK, my garage lights are low wattage T5 units as used in parking garages, 5 dual units.

You have one massive refugium, some want 500L as a display tank but then you like nope I'll use it for filtration, you must have an awesome display then :bigthumbup:

Eskom is always breaking things, you should tell them to fix the light for you..... LOL:lol::lol:

Next you'll be hanging LED spotlights in the kitchen and garage too :rofl:

Someone will be getting a heck of a deal on those lights too:m41:
