These fixtures are much stronger than your existing fixture. They may not appear as bright, but they penetrate the water extremely well.

I have mine like 8" above my tank and my bird nest was bleaching at the top. It's crazy how much stronger it is than t5s. Mine was the 4 bulb 3 ft fixture from fishneedit.com and there was a huge difference.

Exactly like you would hang it from a normal ceiling.

I have 2 over my 33L and have them about 9" off the tank. The owner of the store I bought mine from did a PAR reading in front of me and it was 600 par in a 33L with the light about 6 inches off the top.
They look exactly like an eShine unit I had on a previous tank, driver brand was the same, case looked the same, etc.
