They have some graphs on this page-
Kessil LED Lights
But it's hard to figure out what kind of intensity you are getting at 24" away or more. I mean, is this illustration saying that at 24" off of the bottom, it's lighting 60" from the center?

if so, how much light is it putting that far away? How about at 40"?

Boyfriend says he doesn't want to cut the plastic trim on the tank and hes getting mad at me because I keep saying it wont be hard lol. So no clip on light or suspension lighting kit. So I guess we are going to buy two lights and use rails. Was trying to save us money but this is more his project rather than mine so I will let him do what he wants. >< Don't want to be sleeping on the sofa for the next week lol.

Mr_X, I would love to come pick up the light sometime this week if you are around. We will pay cash for it. Let me know what day/time works best for you.

I know you said you didn't want to hang them from a ceiling, but what about a wall (assuming the tank will be positioned along a wall). This setup using plant hangars originally supported a heavier and longer metal halide fixture shown in the first picture, and when I moved to LEDs, I just reused it. Click image for larger version

I don't have a good shot of the setup with the LEDs, but this is the best one I have at the moment. Click image for larger version

There is a window there. its his parents house and they don't like holes being put in the walls unless absolutely necessary. Don't ask me why lol. My boyfriend decided to do two LED fixtures and use rails to keep them up. I think he kind of has his mind set lol.

Yeah you would need 2 lights. But, the A360 has an adjustable light angle and good water penetration. Kessil LED Lights

The coverage could be better I'll admit and in some cases multiple lights will be needed, plus they are expensive. Having said that, the Kessil does have great water penetration. They ain't for everyone, but I really like mine.
