my other post was geting a bit long about the stand

and tghis is about the lighting. the lil fixture im thinking on is 8$ and is double. it cant go straight on the tank because the bulbs are lower than the sides. its a shop light... should i hang it up or should i make something for it on top of my tank?

I would be clueless on how to calculate the wpg with lights over all the tanks.. And I kinda doubt it would count the entire amount considering not all of the light will be directed at the individual tanks.. Im saying this because I think I saw someone saying something like it in your last thread..
the easiest way I can think to calculate NO floresent light is 10 watts per 12 inches that is over the tanks.. does that help?
