I am definitely gonna use the glass tops though, I plan on some jumpers. LOL

Do youthink the led light would penetrate through the glass though? I have my doubts...

I don't see why they wouldn't. My moonlights penetrate through my glasstops without any issue at all. Only downside is you gotta keep them salt free

hahaha so is the tank i was planing on using it on.

eh it really doesnt matter. im getting a good light for 30$, so cheaper than the leds...i just thought it was funny that i was told no dont use em and here for carey its yeah that would be great for this tank.

a word of caustion that my research dug up and was cautioned about on my 40g fowlr build.

they make a 36"-48" fixture for the double brite (marineland) i thought it would be good on my tank because its only 36" long and would have better coverage. and once you put it on a 48" long tank you get darker spots on the ends.

Yeah, not sure what I'm gonna do about the lights now. :-( I should just keep the t5 fixture I have. Just would get more money for the 55g setup if it had the lights. lol

Mine where just moon lights, and we told you not to get them if you where getting corals. I am curious to see them, so when the get up and running, please send me pics.

Im sure that on a fowlr setup the double brites would be sufficient.
