An update! I am getting the stand ready now, and it should be ready within 2 weeks. After that it's really just getting everything ready. I got my RO
unit running and I am buying a trashcan with a bulkhead fitting so I can let it drip the water into it. As making 5 gallons each time sucks. Anyway!
I NEED HELP with my lighting!
The issue is my 120 gallon LONG tank. As it stands right now it's only going to be a FOWLR
tank and the lighting I have really sucks. I thought what I would do is use the 48in LED
strip I had gotten with the tank that I put on my 55 gallon. It lights my 55 gallon up very well. I than thought I would get a few of the LED
light strips that you can just stick to the top of the canopy, and with both lights running on a test it looked very dim in the tank. :-( I want eye popping lighting for 60in worth of coverage!
What can I get? I was thinking of getting this unit and cutting the top of my canopy to to allow it to rest on top so it wouldn't over heat. It would be 7in above the water.

Combined with the 48in LED
lighting I already have which is this/

I was told that that still wouldn't be enough to reach the lighting goals I wanted. So suggestions? My price point is $200 dollars! I am open to buying two 30in units or just one 60in unit. I just want a nice bright tank that my 55 displays now! I don't need coral lights!
If it helps the tank is 2.1 feet deep! If I were to cut open the hood to place the lighting on top it would sit 7 to 8in higher making the lighting have to reach 2.8 feet to the bottom.
