Does anyone know where I would buy replacement glass for an Aquamedic Metal Halide Light? I think its about time to replace mine. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

I just checked on their site and I didn't see anything about parts. I would think that Exotic Tropical being a dealer could get you the piece.
Why are you thinking its time to replace it? I wouldn't think it would need to be replaced unless it cracked.

Sounds like specialty glass--optical and maybe tempered

If it is over an hqi, it is definatley tempered. If it is not broken don't mess with it.

It is cracked but has been for a while. I would like to replace it. I will call Exotic Tropical.

You may want to get that glass shield replaced soon if its cracked. If it totally breaks, the UV on the HQI lamp is going to cause some serious damage to your tank and can cause some injuries to yourself.(Another reason I dont like HQIs anymore). If ET cant get one, you can just call a local glass shop and have them cut one. Tell you need it tempered and UV blocking. Even a local custom picture framing shop will do.
