How do I open?! AquaticLife T5 HO Light.

thechristophershow

I got an AquaticLife T5 HO Dual Lamp Light Fixture in the mail today and I noticed that the bulbs inside of it are wrapped in plastic. But the acrylic splash guard prevents access to the bulbs. I can't figure out for the life of me how to access the bulbs so I can remove their plastic wrapper! There's no button, no latch, nothing. Anybody have one of these lights?

I had a similar problem with my T5 when I got it - mine is a different brand but it might work the same way. The acrylic splash guard on mine actually slides out lengthwise. Maybe that will work on yours? Good luck.

Mine also slides out to access the bulbs. Odd that they are wrapped though??

the one I had you had to remove the " end cap" to get the guard off

You mean with a screwdriver? I tried sliding the acrylic out, but to no avail. I also tried unscrewing the end, but the freakin' screws only unscrew halfway and then they just keep unscrewing in place. I'll try another screwdriver separate from the ones I already tried :-\

got some pics or something so we can better see what were dealing with?

I think you have to unscrew the end piece. I had the similar thing and if I remember correctly the instructions showed me where to unscrew...
