    I was wondering where I can either get these from locally in the Vancouver area or order them for my 20H also how many and what wattage would I need ideally?

    I ordered mine from lightyourreptiles.com

    There is a 13" and 22 watt option.

    Honestly I think its overkill for a 20 gallon.

    Just regular t5 florescent tube or even low watt compact florescent bulbs will work fine.

    I'm not very familiar with t5 lighting but you need a specific florescent fixture for t5 I believe. I also can't comment on wattage for t5. If you do some searches on this site you should be able to find more info.

    Try google. That might help. Not sure but I don't think they are available in Canada. Lots of places in the states have them and will ship.

    If you're set on ordering them, get them from lightyourreptiles. No need to look any further. No retailers in Canada stock them that I've seen.

    That cost plus shipping is more than ordering from the US unfortunately.

    Canada does have them. We just ordered a set of Jungle Dawn LED 13 watts and are $45.95 each plus shipping, which was around $16 with using Fed Ex from ReptilesRUs. It was about $121.00 total. The ReptiesRus is located.in Ajax, Ontario but only sell online. No store front. I ordered them on Monday and they arrived today. The leds are fantastic, much brighter and the frogs colours " pop" .

    When I was looking for mine there was no place in Canada that sold them.
    I had to order them from the states and pick them up in Sumas.
    Shipping in the states is cheap.

    I used to recommend these highly. Now I can't recommend enough that people stay away from them. Of the 16 units I've purchased, around 10 have failed in under 2 years. And several have failed catastrophically where the tops of my tanks were covered in a thick black soot from the electronics igniting.
    When they work, they work great. But I find that they're too expensive to be replacing yearly.
    As always, YMMV.
