depends on what you want to keep. if you intend on clams, nems and high light needing sps i say splurge on the extra 2 bulbs.

Mr. X. Need your advice again. There are no 60" bulbs in the UV or GE. Where do I go from here?

They only come in 60", that mean I gotta hang it on the ceiling or will the brackets work?

Those 60" fixtures are a devil arent they? I think tek sells the brackets just might not be on BRS website. Check out Aquarium Supplies, Aquarium Supply, Aquarium Equipment, AquaCave.com Offers, Discount Fish Tanks & Fish Tank Supplies for Saltwater, Marine, Coral Reef Guide, Freshwater Aquarium. I think they sell the mounting legs for like $60

They sell a bracket on BRS, but is it going to be long enough? My tank will be 72", correct? Am i missing something?

Ahh I see. Hmm not so sure, maybe someone with that lighting system will hopefully chime in. Sometimes the legs mount on the sides adnit makes it adjustable, but not sure it would go an extra 12 inches.

Ok, unfortunately the legs will only add 2- maybe 3 inches on each side. he reccomended hanging as the best option or using acrylic blocks on either end to have the light sit on. :-( he said he wouldnt invest in the legs personally.

Sorry for the bad news...But maybe you can hang them? I wish I could hang my lights, easy access to the tank and what not.
