    I have a Coralife light fixture for my 10 gallon nano. It originally had a 28 watt inside. I just bought a 36 watt to replace it. How do I know my light fixtures max wattage? I heard if you put a light bulb in that has a lot of watts for the light fixture, it might explode, is this true? Thanks
