60" x 14"? that doesn't make sense. i bet it's 60" x 24". that looks like a hydroponics fixture to me. if it's truly 14" wide, then there is only a single reflector for all of those lamps, and i wouldn't buy it. even the 60" tek light from sunlight supply is almost 20" wide.

I bet the fixture shipped from one location and the lamps from another. Curious to see how it shakes out. I need to upgrade my lighting. Let us know when you receive it.

  • Dimensions - 59.50" x 14.00" x 2.85"
  • Includes four 10000K bulbs
  • Includes four Actinic 460nm bulbs
  • Supports standard T5 HO 80 watt bulbs
  • Supports eight T5 HO 80 watt bulbs
  • Power cord - 10 ft
  • Four power switches to control separate sets of bulbs
  • Plug and play external ballasts for easy maintenance
  • Energy efficient electronic ballasts
  • Contoured reflector for every two bulb for high reflectivity
  • Can be hung horizontal or vertical
  • Built-in electronic ballasts for high energy efficiency
  • Built-in hanging wire for easy installation
  • Body color - textured brown
So it appears to be 14" wide (could be a typo I don't know yet) and has seperate relectors for each 2 bulb group.

quick measurement of the picture looks like you may be right, crap. May be too big for my tank.

I'll know tomorrow, the fixture will be here then.

I would think it would be, but no I have not received my light. According to the tracking I will receive 1 package tomorrow (29 lbs) and then another 8 lbs on Tuesday.

I will be able to tell you exactly what I receive and the correct size. Which I'm hoping it's the 14" and not 24", if it's 24" then it will over hang my tank by 6 inches and that's not acceptable. unless maybe I hang the overhang to the rear and not use the light set for 7 and 8. Don't want to do that either.

Well we shall know tomorrow
