Hello

I've just bought a BOYU TL-550 128litre nano tank (upgrading from my 90L JBJ Nano Cube)

However, I see the BOYU (which is about 40L larger) only has 2x24W T5's, and the Nano Cube had 2x36W T5's!

Ideally i'd like to upgrade the lighting in my BOYU. I'd like your advice on the best way to do this (I want to keep the stock hood). Would I be able to get a 36W ballast that fits in the hood and just replace the 24W T5's with 36W ones?

What would you advise? Also where would I find the necessary equipment?

Much thanks
Matt

Hi Matt,

My sincere apologies for only responding now - been having internet problems :(

I don't know this tank, and if you still need advice could you please post a photo or two.

If you've solved the problem in the mean time, please post what you've done, AND a photo or two, so we can all learn from your experience.

Hennie
