Tank dimensions 32.25" x 14" x 16" rimless. Now Ray2 24" or Ray2 30" have the same amount of light, but it is more spread out on the 30" version.
I am doing a low tech tank so if I raise it 8" above the tank at a total height of 24" the par is at 26 touching the bottom of the tank.
I dont want wasted light or have excess light flooding out the side of the tank so I am wondering if 24" is more ideal as it will spread out light being raised 8". What do you think? ---- Benefit of the 30" is I could put right above tank if I ever wanted to go with medium tech. Regardless I will be dosing Excel.
Does that mean the lights are spread out more on the 30" version or the lights exactly in the same spot...
The LED strips are identical. The only difference is the length of the housing.
The 24" version has a 22.5" LED strip mounted in a 24" housing.
The 30" version has a 22.5" LED strip mounted in a 30" housing.
