    Hi everyone,
    Today I plugged my tank light into my timer for the first time. When I came home the tank light was off, I asked someone who had been home if the light had turned on and they said no...
    The light won't turn on, so I lifted the lid to see that it appears that the light was kinda burned? WHAT THE HECK. This aquarium is only a few months old. It is the blue planet 70L. Has anyone else had this issue?
    Can anyone tell me what actually happened? I also can't find the right replacement bulb which is so annoying. And they are so expensive.
    Here it is: black on one end.

    Do you think it was the timers fault? Or maybe the powerboard/extension it's plugged into? I don't want to buy an $80 new bulb only for this to happen again :(
