    Would just like to know where is the best place i can get T5 lighting in Cape Town (Fittings, Ballasts, Bulbs etc.)? I know of a few places but just wanted some feedback.

    Thanks for the feedback. I spoke to a guy at Lamphouse and he says they only sell the fittings thats complete and its not really for an aquarium, what exactly should i be asking for or looking for.

    Do you wanna build your own? If not you can get a completely built unit at most aqauriums, try SAMS in Diep river

    I want to build a wooden canopy and then just get all the fittings and fix it to the wooden canopy.
