Re: [APD] Adding more light options

It's a toss here. The All-Glass bulbs are GEs and are good bulbs and the AG fixtures are reliable. I know one can't beat the AHS reflectors but the All-glass might not perform any worse. The AHS hoods look nicer to me, being real wood.
Personally, I'm partial to the AHS equipment and have gutted new Perefcto and All-Glass hoods just to switch in AHS kits. But *you* don't have to be that nutty. The diff between the two fixtures probably would not justify a trememdous price diff. If both do what you want, then go for the one that costs significantly less. Other things being equal, I'd go for the AHS.

Come to the 2006 Aquatic Gardeners Association Convention and plan a few extra days in San Francisco enjoying the Cable cars, Lombard St., Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf . . .
The Convention will be November 10-12 at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel -- San Francisco International Airport. Speakers, Field Trip, and the largest aquatic plant auction in the US.
Details will be posted soon at http://www.aquatic-gardeners.org/

Subject: [APD] Adding more light options

I have 4-55 watt power compacts on my 120 tank and was thinking of adding 2  
more 55 watt bulbs. 

The fixtures I have are All Glass. I could add 2 more and they would fit  the 
top of my tank or I could build 2 fixtures and install the AHS 2- 55 kit in  
each fixture.

Just buying a couple more All Glass or some other brand fixture would  be the 
easiest but that would be a lot of fixtures to always be moving  around. The 
AHS way would cost more and take more time but I'm  assuming that it would be 
a better quality fixture.

I was hoping that I might get some input here as to what would be the best  
way to go.
