We need a few of the plastic guards that go over the tank lights - does anyone know where you can buy them? Thanks.

On the tank hood, we have an opaque piece of plastic that sort of wraps around the light and is in between the light bulb and the water.. so if water spray from the air stone flies up, it hits that plastic and not the bulb.

You want just the clear plastic piece or an entire hood? Just the piece would depend on your tank size and if you have a hood or not. The only thing that I could find that might fit what you are looking for . You could just use the back part and leave the door section off.

Yea, just the plastic piece that goes over the light. We got one 10 gallon at a yard sale that doesn't have them, but the new 10 gallon tanks we bought do. The 5 gallon hex didn't have one so that's why i took one out of one of the 10 gallon tanks and put it into the 5 gallon's hood over the FL light.

O are those the one's that you put over incadescent hoods like in the picture, if so I don't know if you can just buy those. I would just get a glass versa-top like luniyn said, there cheap too.

Maybe trying a manufacture's website to see if you can get a part. Otherwise maybe you would just want a new hood that has the shield built in.
