Lighting Question?

I have a 110G tank tank is 72inches long. Im curious as to if it maters if I use two 36inch fixtures or a single 72inch fixture? Not trying to be cheap just wondering if it really matters? Ty

I dont think it matters. 72 inches is 72 inches.

Only matters if you're planning on supporting it on the frame of the aquarium.

How deep is your tank? The depth will matter as to how much penitration you will get. The one longer with higher wattage will give you more penitration.
