Help needed quick.

I need two 3 ft 30w t8 tube lights, in a hurry. They are for my fish tank.
I can't feed the fish without them cause they wont be able to see the food.

Stoped working on the weekend. I went up and down my high street today, and no one seems to have three foot even in other types.

Any ideas where I can buy them in London?

Re: Help needed quick.

Hell, we're now sorting food problems for the fishies!

Don't youi have a DIY store in your area?  Perhaps a phone call to one or two places.

Surely fish instinctively know their grub's arrived, especially if you feed them at the same time daily?  Mine did.

For now, can you shine a lamp in to the tank?

They seem to have some choice. Until finding a solution perhaps you can fix a torch to the tank. But fish do know when something arrives on the surface of the water. My pond fish will have a taste of anything..even their babies yikes

Do you have a pets at home store near to you, give them a ring and see if they have any in stock or see what they suggest.

Re: Help needed quick.

Yep got pets shops but these are standard lights. Buy them from a normal shop and they would cost about 5, 2 online, but from a petshop about 20 each, maybe even more. Anyway the fish are eatting so it isn't such an emergeny any more.
