TaoTronics TT-GL002 how many?

Ive read a bunch of reviews on these and the only con I find is the noise... Which unless its really loud I wont even hear it cause I will have overflow to sump noise anyway. SOOO my question is how many fixtures will i need for my 40G breeder? 36" long...

That and from what I read I would be able to keep pretty much whatever I want with them?

Thanks.

I have 3 over a 180g. I'd say 1 should be fine. And I have clams, sps, lps, and softies with mine, plus 6 nem's with no issues. Fans are not that loud...

How long have you been running them? Would it hurt to get two?

I actually just switched to a 46 gallon bow today cause the breeder was leaking... Anyway its still 36" but it's 20" deep... How high should the lights hang from the water?

7 inches and it's 22" deep (2" sand bed) I'd go 10 " for you. After sand it'll be a lot shallower.

I've been running them for quite awhile. My thread kio 3.0 has the pics and everything to show progress. Two should be fine.

This is a tough decision on a three foot tank. Personally I would go with one. Hanging 10 inches or more above the water will get it enough spread. These things are so powerful.

Is it a good or bad idea to have them in a hood?

Doesn't matter if your hood is tall enough to get them as far as they need to be off of the water. I had to make my own hanging kit for mine to be able to get them 11 inches off the water. I made my canopy though so I doubt most canopies will be able to accommodate it.
