Are you interested in MH at all?

I have a couple fixtures in mind for both applications...in 30" and/or hangable.

This might be too ghetto for your liking, not sure LOL

But this fixture comes in both a 24 and 30 and sits on top of your lid or glass. Unless I totally forgot if youre going topless or not you will have the lids maybe. Just a thought. The 24" has the same bulb as the 30" but the 30 would look better. You can stack two of these units to get a 4 bulb experience. At about $200.

LOL

I'm still searching though n that was just a budget friendly option

No worries Carey, I really appreciate the effort. Is it possible to hang this fixture over the tank and it will provide enough light to keep anything?

I know it's not a 30inch, but it does have everything and 2 extra bulbs...

I like it. I think if you hang it you will have some areas of better coverage though so I'd keep all clams and the such properly placed. I don't think it will be a noticeable difference in my opinion.


Plus its got moonlights! I soooo want moonlights lol
