Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my Marineland Pro350 I wish it was easier to break the suction to remove lid to change/clean filter. I am 69 years old and feel like this requires more strength than I have. I use 2 or 3 large flat screwdrivers and it is still a lot of work.

Where can I find an f10

Asked by: TLCAREY
F10 is just the designation for the diameter of a bulb. It is not a common size, and is usually only found in commercial lights. The fixture can take the F8, which is extremely common, but the wattage must not be more than the unit's initial bulb. F10 bulbs can usually be found in DIY hardware stores and lighting stores.BREX

Regent galaxy aquarium

The light switch in my regent galaxy aquarium has broken. Can I get just the switch? Or do I have to buy the whole lamp base assembly? I also should purchase another replacement lamp as I see that the prongs on the bulb are black like it's been shorting out. Please let me know.Thanks!Geo
Asked by: Geo1
This particular tank has been discontinued since around 2002. The lamp would be available but the lamp base assembly would not be. You can buy the bulb here: http://www.marineland.com/search.aspx?q=eclipse#/?filter.brand=MarinelandBREX

Eclipse Bulb needs to be replaced

Hi there,My aquarium bulb finally went out so I am online searching for a replacement. I need a 10W bulb for an Eclipse bow front tank. The only bulb I am finding is the same one that died, a daylight fluorescent bulb. I hate this daylight bulb as it has caused a massive amount of algae to grow. I only use the light from 11pm - 7am, yet it's strong enough to completely coat the sides and decorations within 2 weeks. I'm tired of scrubbing algae. Is there another type of bulb that will fit my tank that is NOT a daylight? If so, where can I find this? Thanks!
Asked by: ElaineL
Any 10 watt bulb of the same length/style will work, check at DIY hardware stores. In regard to the algae, light does not cause algae, nutrients do. If you are getting that much algae, you are either overstocked or not maintaining the tank often enough, feeding too much, something along these lines. For these tanks, vacuum the gravel and replace 25% of the water once a week to keep the tank balanced. I don't know if you have a 6 gallon or 12 gallon, but in either case, I would recommend a once a week water change. Also, the light being on at night prevents the fish from having a day/night cycle. It is better to have it on during the daytime for about 8 hours. Can be 2 - 10 pm if you want to view them in the evening, but they need complete darkness at night, like any other animal.BREX

African Cichlid Lighting

I have a 48" fluorescent hood and would like to know the best bulb for my tank. I want to highllight the cichlids colors and not stress them with heat. Your recommendations are appreciated.
Asked by: Rfreddy321
A standard natural day light would probably work best. Look for a bulb with Kelvin of 5500-6000.BREX

Eclipse aquariums and LED light systems

Hi. I've seen it recommended that in the Eclipse systems, when upgrading to an LED system, the cord in the Eclipse hood be cut and a Hidden LED system be installed on the frame. My question is, where would the Hidden LED bar be mounted in an Eclipse setup? There's not really an open area, as the Eclipse hood completely encompasses the top of the aquarium. If I have to remove the hood, then I'll need to buy an aftermarket pump and filter, which defeats the purpose of buying the Eclipse to begin with. Is it possible to remove the existing lighting ballast and mount/splice in the Hidden LED system where the fluorescent light used to be? I can't imagine there'd be too much to it. The ballast obviously isn't welded on there, so wouldn't that be a simpler solution? Or even better, maybe make an aftermarket upgraded hood, with the day/night LED system as opposed to the fluorescent bulb that's currently installed in the hood.
Asked by: drumguy
No, you do not remove the ballast and attach it to the cover. You attach the HIdden LED to the frame of the TANK, underneath the inner overhang. It will not interfere with the Eclipse in any way, as long as you attach it in the front.We've considered upgrading the Eclipses, but at this time, have no interest in doing so.BREX

the ballast in my Eclipse 2 hood has fried- is there a replacement?

Asked by: Nikonaut
Unfortunately, no. That has been discontinued for a while. You would need to either replace the whole Eclipse System, or you can cut the light cord, remove the bulb, and use a Hidden LED light, that attaches to the frame of the tank.BREX
