Exactly ... so for now I'd say hold tight and wait. If you do go with the Aqueon, the best thing to do the glass canopy, then lay the fixture across the top. I will say this, a glass canopy will really give your tank an nicer sleeker look ... especially since the Aqueon fixture is so thin. Just a little more $$$ to consider spending.

BTW ... Amazon has great deals on lighting and canopy tops.

Will do, thank you... Now that I think about I'll definitely had to keep you posted cause I'm in the process of putting together parts for a 40g breeder that I'm setting up and the hood I ordered is a 3 piece glass/plexi and I want it to be heavily planted for breeding purposes so I'll definitely see if I can find a dual for the 40 and use the bulbs you recommended earlier.

I'm getting all excited just thinking about my new 40 lol

40breeders are a great tank size... You'll have fun I'm sure.
