Fluorescent Aquarium Lighting: All-Glass Twin-Tube Black Strip Lights

I need a longer light fixture for my aquarium...my current one only covers a third of my tank length.

thanks!

I use the 4' tripple tube version. It's a good fixture. Never had any problems and they can be used with a timer. I think it's a good choice.

Do you just set it on top of a glass cover? Do you have clips or feet or something on it so it is raised?

Thanks for your inpu, btw.

Yes. It says you have to have a glass cover under it. It sits right on the glass or sides of the tank. It's not elevated. That's actually nice because then you don't get any light in your face when you're viewing the tank.

My current one sits on the tank but the problem is I can't open the tank without moving the light (not even to feed them) and when I move the light, it scares my pleco (even though it means food is coming...he's so skittish). But I'm okay just letting it sit on the sides, too. Thanks for the input...I'll probably just order it now then.

p.s. by the way, I just had to look at your tank photos again and I noticed you don't have a list of inhabitants...that's okay but I really like your set up. Just curious about which fish are in there b/c you have tetras and danios like me and I wondered when I move them to a larger tank, which other fish will be compatible.

Are you getting the light for the 55 or the 29? I think in both cases, all glass makes a special sized glass top to match the wider fixture.

I'll see if I can add my inhabitants.

the 29...I have the glass top already so I just need the light fixture. If I like it maybe i'll get this model for my next tank!
