You can slide them in on the FNI fixture, not sure about the others. You can put a 4' light on a 10g tank and still use the legs on the FNI fixtures... if you wanted.

Do you guys buy the bulbs from FNI as well? They are cheap! But it doesn't say what kind they are??

Nah, they're cheap bulbs. First thing I did when I got mine was replacing the bulbs... but unless you buy a geisemann, ati, or tek fixture (maybe a few others?), you're not going to get great bulbs.

I have a 55g, and I am now considering fishneedsit. What color temp would I need for my fresh water tank? I am going to try to grow some java moss and onion plant.
I have some kribensis, tiger barbs, danios, platys, pleco, and silver tipped shark.

Unfortunately, all t5HO 30" fixtures have the 24" bulbs (actually they are like 23 3/4"). However, that only leaves 3 inches unlit on each side, and the par loss is minimal, especially at depth. The light spreads sideways at the ends just as it does front to back on the tank.

I don't know if i'm hijacking this thread but is it worth it to buy a 30" fixture that has 24" bulbs or should i find one that has 30" bulbs?

30" bulbs are NOT easy to find. They are not a standard size, which means that good bulbs aren't there. You cannot get Geisemann or ATI bulbs in 30".
