During the Home Show, I video tape the tanks while Lee Finley does
the still photography, and judges the tanks. I want to go back
down to Jack's some time along with my still camera, but kids,
horses, cats, gardens, tanks and this darn computer keep getting
in the way ;-) People who have Compuserve access have seen my
tanks, it's just laziness that has kept me from sending some pics

You've got it. That's exactly what they are.

I don't know of a mail order source, and it's highly unlikely that
you'll find them in a pet shop. (and when they get around to
carrying them, they'll charge too much for them anyway. ;-)
I'd try a commercial lighting supplier. I've been told you can
get them through Grainger.
