Thanks! Yeah, Logan told me 90deg optics and not to worry about shadows. I just can't decide between the 16" & 24" controllable versions. 24" actually has 4 fewer emitters but would cover a larger area. (My 36G bow is 30" long.) Price difference is minimal.
Funny, I'd considered swapping in an acrylic patch for the center brace too. Is it a common practice?

Yeah its common more in the saltwater game. I wish tank manufacturers would make the center brace clear. There are many DIY center braces out there. You can also see many youtube videos. I think you should DIY a clear brace if you are able to. Its actually blocking out a lot of light and i hate the idea of wasted light along the center. It makes me want to upgrade to a bigger cube tank.

Kind Regards,
