Just gentle twist the square ends, they come off pretty easy.

is it safe to have the bulb in the tube by itself, there won't be any melting right?

Wrap some velcro around the end of the bulb, there should be a velcro patch you can stick it to at one end of your res

Thanks guys! When the guy says to "line up" the fill ports, what exactly does it mean?

Pretty much just not having the helix block the ports you are using, that's all.

Well, pulled out the ccfl and it was cracked in two so that explains why it does light up. Not sure how it cracked but its dead basically. Ordered two 8" uv ccfl from newegg for $9 w/ free shipping. The usual shops (ppcs.com and fcpu.com) were more than twice as much. Thanks for the tip on the standard ccfl lights to use w/ the res. +1 thumb.gif

Only one of the ends is going to come off that easily. Before we started getting them in without the tube, i spent a lot of my time cutting them open. We use a pair of wire cutters to snip off the bottom square. Then we find a part of the tube that has the least amount of glue and lightly snip it to break a small segment off, and then slowly twist the cathode to unseat it from the hot glue. Its not the easiest thing to do, but it can be done.

Hey guys, I have a problem with my tube res. I think one of the threads on the bottom is stripped or something but if I keep screwing it will tighten almost all the way and if I go any further it becomes a bit looser again. When I tilt the res sideways or any big movements water starts leaking out from the threads. The o-ring is still intact
