T5HO fixtures.

Are there T5HO fixtures (preferably a 30", 2x24 watt bulb light) that can actually suspend over the tank, gripping the sides, but works with a glass/acrylic top?

The T5HO we bought only holds the edges of the tank if there's no top. So it just sits on top and heats up the water.

My odyssea fixture works with my glass covers. Not the best brand but mine work fine.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Nova Extreme and fixtures from Fishneedit.com both have legs that grip the outside of the tank and won't get in the way of a glass top.

Here is one that may fit your needs. I have the 36" version and I must say they are very well made and put out lots of light.

Do you only have a single bulb one though? I'd want a double bulb.

I have been looking for the same thing.
I think the Hagen Glo lights need a clamp that fits in both the inside and outside lip of the tank ?

I kind of settled on ...
Aqualight by Coralife. its 30" with 2 18w bulbs. Or
NovaExtreme by Current USA. 30" with 2x24w bulbs.

I think the novaextreme can be found at bigals for about $100. USA.

All right. Well thanks everyone! Looks like there are a lot more options than I originally thought.

Just happened to pick the ONE that doesn't work!
