I was waiting for them to come back in stock, so I told the seller to let me know when his new shipment came in, meanwhile i saw a returned fixture for sale as a used unit, but was only in the customers possession for 6 days, so I bought that. Now the first guy sends me a message saying he's going to invoice me, and did, so I kinda felt obligated to some extent. It's ok, either way, I can use it if you don't want it.

I could make it work if I cut the inner trim off of the tank, which isn't hard. I would have to go to a glass cutting shop and get the glass canopy cut to allow room for the brackets, which again shouldn't be an issue.

I need your hook ups! I would love it as long as you don't have any need for it. I will have to talk to my other half but I am sure he would say yes. When he gets home, I will talk with him and get back to you later on sometime tonight.

Ok. I would cut about 2"-3" or so from the inside of the black trim. That should allow you to fasten it to the glass. A dremel would cut right through that with ease. As far as a glass lid, I would skip it entirely. Better gas exchange without it.

My boyfriend is invert crazed so we plan on getting turbo snails. I would feel better with the snails if I had a canopy. I have had a few of my freshwater snails jump ship from holes in the back of my canopy .

I have a rimless tank and have never had a problem losing snails. Maybe it's a fresh water problem.....

Could I use one of the 360W's light the entire tank, 36" long, and grow high light coral? According to one of the reviews one of these is considered only low light.
