What is the difference in the 6x54watt and 6x80 watt? Just simply more watts?

I've only seen them, I have no idea whats involved lol. Sorry...

The tek lights come with hanging holes I believe. If you do go with the tek, I would spend the extra $100 and get the 8 bulb fixture. But thats just me.

You can also check out LED's too. I know theres alot of retro kits with that type of light, but again I have no idea specifically.

hmm I can't see where it tells you the kind of bulbs they include. You dont buy a great fixture and put in sub par bulbs if you have a choice.

yeah, Im thinkin that I want ATI bulbs.

I don't know if I should get the 60" or the 48" fixture, I measured the inside of my canopy and I can squeeze the 60 in there with a half inch to spare... what do you think?

Just keep in mind youre not gonna have the intensity on 6 inches of each side of the tank. I'm not sure how that would look. Unless you stagger them somehow underneath. But then you'll lose the intensity in certain spots.

Theres gotta be someone on the forum who has done this before. lol

I'm gonna go look at retro kits and see if i can learn anything.
