Are all the All-Glass aquarium light fixtures junk? I bought a 55 gal combo at Wal-mart .Took two 24" hoods back already. Now have the 3rd one quit .Cheap electronic ballest. Where can I get better ballest for them or good hood lights. Can I put a 48" hood light on there .

i haven't had any trouble with mine.i have 2 24" a 48" and a 36" fixture. the most i have had to do is replace the starters.i'm sure you can use a 48" on your 55,mine came with a 48" fixture.:)

you can buy a better quality light/hood ...most 55 gallon tanks are 48", so look for that size. Try BigAl's....or even Foster & Smith..or your LFS if they're reasonable :)
