Does anyone know where to purchase a CFL lamp to replace the standard 15 watt tubular incandescent bulbs that come with so many tank covers?? I did find it at walmart.com, but they were out of stock. then i found it on amazon, but again, out of stock, and i'm not even totally sure those would have worked. I really hate incandescent and would love to replace with CFL's
My Walmart does not have them. in fact i tried to order them, site to store and after they took my order, they said they were out of stock. same problem with amazon. Can you tell me the name and other info on the ones in your Walmart so i can search for them online? Thanks so much!!
Rosy, look where they have light bulbs, they should have all kinds of CFL bulbs. If you have plants buy the daylight CFLs and on the back there should be a K rating buy the ones that have 5000 to 6500K. If they are out then I would suggest Home Depot or Menard's
walmart should have a section for tank lights and should be labeled small medium large or whatever. if you go in the bulb section you won't find the right size i did that by mistake and almost brought home the wrong size. hope this helps
Thanks everyone! Maybe i will try a walmart, or home depot in the city. the ones close to me are smaller and do not carry everything. (and if i am smart i will bring a bulb with me to make sure the base is the same size) Will let you know if i ever find one!!
Success! Petsmart carries 2 different types of bulbs. I bought one of each. both work great, but i like the marineland version best. the other is a white/blue bulb which changes the color of the fish. Thanks for all your input!!
