    can anyone recommend an appropriate hood/light for ap12g fowlr.
    i received my 12g ap w/ mh sunpod light but, they did not include a pump.  rather than send a pump they send the entire set up w/o the sunpod.
    so now i have upgraded the ap12g sunpod with a new pump for a reef and would like to setup fowlr set up as well with the extra tank...i just need a light source.
    also...does anyone have any reputable lr suppliers in the cedar rapids or ic/coralville area/  headed to coral/bay to see what they have to offer.
    thanks for any and all advice...
    remember...don't feed turkey to your  fishes.  it makes them very sleepy.

    If you're just doing FOWLR - you don't really need anything special for lighting because you won't be supporting any photo synthetic coral and it will just be used to view the fish.

    If you do want it to keep the same clean look of an aquapod - you could look at nanotuners.com and they have hoods you can buy with no lighting - and then you can upgrade to whatever lighting you choose (and you would probaby just choose 2x13W PC lighting or something comparable)

    here's an option

    Or if you want something cheap you could try something like this - although it's not gonna fit perfectly...

    If you want to DIY a canopy - again you just need minimal lighting - so you could build a canopy to fit the tank - and retro some small lighting into it.

    I'm sure there are some reefers in the area who are willing or even wanting to seel the small amount of LR you'd need for a 12AP.

    Pretty sweet deal you got by the way!
