No, we do not. But then, we did not make a 40 gallon hexagon. We made a 27 and a 60 gallon one. A competitor of ours made a 35. BREX

Aqaurium 48 X 24 X 13"

Two Marineland Hoods with one 18" Flourescent daylight 15 Watt bulb in each hood. Is there additional watt bulbs available for these hoods. I would like to increase the wattage, to better reflect the color of my African Cichlids. No plants in aquarium. Please advise if items are available and if this is a beneficial suggestion. I do not want to go to LED lights at this time.
Asked by: Fastwillie
No, that would be the maximum wattage you could use. However, you are kind of looking at this wrong. All wattage does is provide you with the amount of energy a light uses. It does not provide you with the lumens or the amount of actual light the bulb is putting out. So try some different bulbs with different ratings, keeping in mind that if you get too bright, you might cause too much algae. For example, most standard fluorescent bulbs used in these strips are 5000 Kelvin or 5000K. Some may be 5500K. You might look for a bulb that is 6000K. 6500K is what is required to grow plants, so if you wanted to add some plants (African cichlids live in a mostly rocky environment, but some grasses do grow there, and Jungle Val is a popular one to add to their tank), you could try this. If you don't add plants, you will get algae. Additionally, some bulbs have more of a yellow light, or more of a blue light. Most bulbs will have a spectrum chart on their outer package, so be sure to read this, and keep track of what you purchase, and how you do or don't like it to find the right lighting for your needs. One last piece of advice, you don't have to buy expensive bulbs at the pet store. Check out your local DIY hardware store for bulbs at a fraction of the cost. Just remember that whatever you choose, 15 watts is the most it can be. Anything higher can burn out the ballast or potentially start a fire. Besides, more watts just equates to more of an electric bill, not more light for the fish. BREX

No, these are only for tanks up to 60 gallons. You would need a glass canopy for a 75 gallon tank, and the Advanced LED strip light, if you are planning to keep fish only. BREX

Looking for a replacement hood

They measure 22 1/4 inches long and 4 1/2 inches wide. The light says R02102 Aquarium Equipment model 24FBHex and (2nd) 24RFH .The last is from a 70 or 75 gal Marineland hood. Do you have either or both of these hoods or know where I can get them? Thank You
Asked by: SalZ
The first one is for a flatback hex, and is no longer available. The second one I'm not sure about because a 75 is 24 inches deep, but the description you have supplied is for a 24 inch long, not deep, hood. We do not make black hoods for this size tank any longer, only glass canopies. BREX

Do you have an aquarium hood that is 30 1/2" wide? Most of the hoods are only 30" wide. I have OLD metal frame aquarium that is a weird size. 30 1/2"

Asked by: SteveAReno
The 30"x12" hood would actually be about 29.5" in length, since you have to accomodate for the inside lip of the framing. The dimensions are always for outside to outside measurements of the tank, so that it is easy to identify the product. MINI

do you make a recessed full fluorescent hood for 28gal.curved front Item#10280 ?

Is it available in black and does it have a front opening panel for feeding ? Can the back strip be cut to accommodate a heater and filter pump ? Where can I get The curved front 28 gallon aquarium #10280 and the Majesty geometric stand for the 28gallon curved front tank item #70453 and the full hood to match this tank?

We only have the Heartland stand available, there is also only a glass canopy, no full hood, and no wooden canopy. The tank is also an open stock tank so the items can be bought separately through independent fish stores. BREX
