Does anyone know the best store in the Detroit area to get pc bulbs for a
30" setup? Mine broke when trying to clean it, but they're due to be replaced anyway.

Hi Amy,

I generally order mine on line. If you want to follow the Christmas pattern. I am okay with that.

lol Great! I looked them up on fosters and smith but couldn't really find them. Where do you order them from and how long does it take? Could be as soon as this weekend.

What fixture do you have? Are they 4 pin in line or square? 10k or actinic or 50/50?

The code from the bulb will work too...

I thought you would get a kick out of my comment.-devil

I would not order from Marine depot if you want then this week. They ship fast but UPS take about 5 days from the west coast.

It's a Coralife 30" with 4 pins in a straight row. The 10,000k broke but I might as well get a new actinic too. I'll look online again. There is nothing local for me except NO.

i might have some 65w or 55w actinics. i bought them new from a planted tank person that didn't need them. i'll check the sizes, but i'm thinking they were made for a 24 inch fixture.

would those work?? i was hoping to sell them for $10 bucks each? pm me if you're interested.

there is a new type of PC bulb coming from UVL (ultraviolet lighting formerly URI) called UVh2ology bulbs with built-in reflectors that look very promissing. They should be coming out this week.

I have a brand new 36 watt 10,000k and a 36 watt 6700k blue that I didn't even open because I needed the square pins, and ordered the wrong ones from hamilton. I'll sell them for 35.00 ea brand new! pm me if you are interested. I will ship them to you too.
