great news guys

i found a compact flurescent 55w strip light and a double tube flurescent strip light the double is 62$ and i am not sure what the 55w one is but i think i might get one to get more wpg but that's awsome for me and i am currently saving up for a 30 gallon high angel fish tank but i have a dresser that it would fit on but it would be a little less tahn a fourth of an inch off of each side would that be bad

Tanks full of water are extremely heavy as I'm sure you know so make sure the dresser is sturdy enough to handle the weight.

Where did you find these light strips? At your local fish store? Or online? Are they new or used? What brand? Do they fit a 30 gallon tank? I also have a 30 gallon tank and might be getting another light strip since mine is only for one 20W bulb. And I want to grow more plants, so a 20W definitely won't do in the long run for higher-light plants.
