Welcome to the forum Itsallfish.
I'm afraid I can't give you any hints on your light needs. After market lighting fixtures are sold by a number of different places or can even be put together by a fish keeper who is handy at DIY projects. Do you have a non-functioning light fixture or none at all? If your fixture is simply not working we could probably guide you through troubleshooting it.

thanks for the welcome,
The light fitting has burnt out the only way to fix it is to get a new one.

The functioning part has burned out but what is the length of the fixture and where are you located? If you are in the US we could steer you to places that sell repair parts, I am sure other members could do the same if you are in the UK.

Hi,

I also have one of those small tetra tanks with the defective light. Wrote to tetra via their website and very helpful and obliging customer services have sent a new lid which arrived today. Yippee!

I've struggled for a couple of hours and can't remove those darned plastic screws which hold on the existing lid, so can anyone tell me how to remove the old lid please? I'm sure it's probably something stupidly simple but I just don't get it.

Thanks
