t5 ho fixture brackets
just curious... i am looking into getting some lighting to start a planted tank.
i am seeing that a good number of these have brackets on the sides for mounting to the tank rim.
so, do these type of lights require mounting to the tank or can they be lying on the tank without the brackets? in addition, does t5 ho lighting require the glass tops to be removed?
i know the tops will deter some light from the plants, but how much does it matter if at all.
reason for asking about the brackets is that i am looking at possibly getting 2 36" fixtures. i would not be able to mount them at the center point of my tank. so do they just lay on top with no glass lids under them?
