anyone here improvise due to the sometimes over expensive prices of the standard aquarium hoods and lights which are often sold separatley.

I went to wal Mart yesterday and bought a 48" under the counter florescent lighting fixture that included the bulb for 12 dollars canadian. It is white florescent light and I think it looks wicked and is either as good in quality as actual aquarium lights or better.

Anyone else here use cheaper alternatives to the actual lights that you are "suppose" to use ? thanks.

I used 2 24" wal-mart under cabinet "grow lights" on my recentally finished stand. They light the tank just fine, and heres what they look like installed.

I did something similar iLLwiLL. It's an 18 under-cabinet light with a 750 lumen aquarium light. It's almost overkill though. The Ps don't like the light on anyways.
