Buying a t5 light fitting in Australia??

Postby CaramelBeet » Sun Apr 02, 2017 7:47 pm

I want to get a reptisun t5 10.00 for my tank (the one that came with it is only a t8 5.0, and some unheard of brand). The only thing is, I can't find a fitting anywhere! The smallest t5 fitting I can find is 120cm, which is too big (that's the entire length of my viv!). I can't use the zoomed one because I need one that attaches to the wooden top of my viv (and it's super pricey). The current one looks like it just screws in.
Any ideas? Bunnings doesn't have any online, it's quite a way away but I could make the trip if I had to. Not really sure where else I could find one

Oops, sorry, maybe I wasn't very clear...
I can't use the zoomed one (or any hood, really) because the top of my viv is wooden, not a screen. The fitting that's in there at the moment looks like it's been screwed into the top. I'm looking for something like that, but a t5.

How do you attach it to the top?

Also, I just took a look, Dr Foster won't ship to Australia. The only place I seem to be able to get them from is amazing amazon, but I can't say I want to fork out $130 for a fitting (and then I have to buy the bulb on top of that, which from memory is more than $50 from them), unless it's absolutely the only way.
