I just bought a shelf unit to place my tanks on and have decided to have one long strip light for each shelf instead of each tank having there own. But I really don't know anything about lights so my ? for you guys/gals is what should I look for in getting a light? I went to the local HD today and couldn't pick one out. I was choosing between three four foot lights one had a T4 magnetic ballast, one had a T8 electronic ballast, and the third had a T12 ballast.

Thanks for your help. :)

For my set up I have rows of tens under a simple two tube 40watt "shoplight" fixture. I thing I spent nine dollars on each fixture and about 11 dollars on the bulbs for the fixtures (one 6500k and one 10,000k) I'm not growing anything amazing in the tanks but the usual pathos, small broms. and a few orchids. I have been more then happy with it. Unless you plan on growing something besides the usual or overdring lights that's the set-up I would run.

If you have any question feel free to email me.
