OK, here's a shot of the tank with the new light. You can't actually see the fixture as it rests on the glass right now. I was getting a fair amount of glare when it was up on the legs, which only raise it 1/2" anyway, but this reduces it to next to nothing. The fixture is only 5/8" high, probably the lowest profile on the market short of putting something in the tank or a light strip.
Timer is set for a 12 hour photoperiod with a 1 hour low light at both ends. I used to have 14 or more hours so this is a 2 hour reduction.
I go from 12 LEDs to 27. The shots don't really show the difference (tried a before and after shot) due to the automatic light compensation "feature" So I didn't post anything. I prefer manual cameras but that's not an option right now. Maybe the iPad won't compensate so ill try that later.
