MH or T5
I've considered MH, but have a lot of questions about them. I don't want to hang a MH over the tank, and would prefer it be supported by legs. So my biggest concern is heat. Don't MH produce a lot of heat? Are they too hot to position over a glass canopy top?
I might be making a mountain out of a mole hill regarding the 20" fixture. Bulbs are available, but don't appear to be common. If I selected a 24" fixture, bulbs for that size are available everywhere. Would it look stupid to have 2" protruding from each side of the top with a 24" fixture over a 20" tank? I could probably live with it.
BTW, I really do like the Aquatic Life fixtures. Thanks for your comments.
