I'm sure you could with both fixtures over your tank. The 4 bulb fits perfectly on my tank since its 24" but yours is 30" so it's less light coverage because the bulbs are only 24" long

I second that!! My 20g freshwater drives me nuts every time I want to take off the hood i gotta first take the light off! Lol question ibrahim if you don't mind. I'm buying a 75 gallon tank as soon ask find the perfect one! I'm looking for what equipment I need. Could you suggest some brands to keep an eye out for! Thanks. Sorry for the temporary hijack!

Good protein skimmer brands are Eshopps, ASM, Octopus, and bubble magus. There are others but I can't think of them right now....A good return pump would be a mag drive.....,good lights would be a 4 bulb and a 2 bulb t5ho from aquatraders.com or fishneedit.com.... I like the fluval canister filters but I'm currently running a CFS700 and love it.

Hey thanks! I think I found a tank that I'm excited to get today just a quick question. She says it's drilled in the back corner by the over flow. This is what I want for the sump correct?

Heres the listing

What size it? 300-400 for a used 75 is pretty expensive.

Edit. Sorry didn't see link. I guess it comes with stand but still kinda high IMO

$400 is a bit high in my opinion as well. is there anything else included with the tank and stand? lights, skimmer, sump?

Just tank and stand but it is drilled. Also canopy. I offered 300 she said 375 I offered 350 and I'm waiting. If she goes for it I think I'm going to buy it. It is a little high but I'm impatient lol. And I really like the canopy look

You know there is a lot more stuff you need to buy. Rock, sand, I would highly recommend a skimmer, salt, refractometer, test kits, rodi unit (also highly recommended), lights, the list goes on. Odds are you'll buy a majority of this online and have to wait. I would be wiling to bet if you keep up the hunt for a week or two you will find something you like more for a better price.
