Looks good. I like that you can just have the 2 outer bulbs lit to give nice light spread or the 1 middle bulb. I also like that pinkish bulb (plant grow bulb I assume ?) in the middle. Was this custom made?

Nice looking fixture! Do the 3 bulbs provide enough light spread in a 72? (Meaning back to front). I'm considering a high light 75 and would like to get either the 3 or 4 bulb Catalina.

The only custom part that was added was 8 moonlights

I think 3 bulbs will do

I almost bought their ready-made 3 bulb 48" fixture but ended up going a different way ... for now at least.

Once you get it setup I'd really like to see a pic of the moonlights on in the tank .. if you could swing it.
