I'm looking for the slim profile type that sits on top glass lid. Like the Marineland ... That's what I have, the single bright... But I was told they are garbage and don't use them.

What's your budget?

Plus there's a lot of sit on top fixtures but I would not recommend marine land or coralife based on what I heard so basically nothing from like petco or pets mart.

Plus sit on top of glass covers will create lots of evaporation for you so I would go with about 4 in from the cover to the fixture at least

Like $200 I would be comfortable with. The marine land LEDs I had gave off no heat at all... Is that what causes evaporation?

Yes heat makes evaporation.
