Lightbulb went out. D'oh!

This is why I usually have backup on hand, but not this time.

I have a 3 gallon eclipse NPT that usually holds a 9in t5 fluorescent bulb.

MY LFS usually has some in stock but right now I guess they are out 2 weeks for restock, so I should order one online.

Does anyone know the best place to find a 9 inch t5 (6200-6500k) online for cheap? I have found it on amazon and aquarium guys, but amazon is pricey and ag has terrible reviews.

Thanks!

I would go with Amazon its more trustworthy. Just check your shipping dates.

All right, thanks!

I have a 13W CFL on the tank right now, but hopefully I'll get that new light soon!

You can check any hardware store like: Lowes, Home Depot or Menards. They sometimes have those bulbs handy and they are usually cheap.

Be a master of water and the fish will follow
