SeaClear Expand-A-Light Fluorescent Fixture
Just what I needed!
The SeaClear aquariums simply do not have adequate lighting. This fixture was easy to install in my SeaClear hood, and it gave the lighting boost that I needed.
Mine takes a T-8 bulb.

I used it for only a month and the light does not come on anymore. I've taken it apart and checked the wires and everything looks fine but still does not work.

Pros & Cons
-Fairly easy to install into an existing SeaClear (Casco) hood if you have the "slot" (many Casco hoods allow two fixtures but come with one) with basic tools (drill, pliers).
-Separate plug allows you to control the fixture via its own switch (or its own timer if desired).
-Built in (metallic) ballast does not require replaceable starter.
-ONLY ACCEPTS T12 bulbs! (Does NOT work with T8 bulbs which require an electronic ballast)
-Plug transformer ("the block") is at the outlet and not further up the cord so it may obstruct other outlets on your power strip.
