Got a cheap old clipon lamp at lowes and a 2pack of daylight spectrum 6500k 13w (60 equivilant?) lights, total price came out to like $17. the lamps are only like $9 and some change right now, I might go back for another one if all goes well with my returns tomorrow.
Compare to two superdim 'grow lights' from two separate sources (one of which STILL HASN'T ARRIVED
) at $27 each, I think I'm kinda done with LEDs for a bit....
On the bright side TANK SETUP IS TOMORROW!
I'm super excited. My LFS can't take returns until 3, and I don't want to make two trips, so I won't have the shrimp for the initial setup, but I don't think that's too big a deal, I still have a lot to do just organizing this rathole of a room and getting everything ready and planted. Might grab that watersprite I was looking at, too, depending on how well the plants I already have fill out the new tank, just to keep my notoriously rude LFS guys happy.
