Trust me it has brackets. if you were to put it on the glass your aquarium would boil. Replace all 4 bulbs that it comes with. They are crap.

Yeah it comes with 4 different lamps. (2 actinics and 2 10000ks) but those bulbs are crap so you should replace them with quality bulbs of the correct wattage.

yep, 10k is white. the 20k bulbs you can choose will be white still but more blueish. the actinics are totally different. Just get 2 of each. You can replace the bulbs if you want after you get it if you really wanted but youre looking at another $20 a bulb to do that.
