How far can the legs of each Finnex FugeRay extend out? Or more specifically, I have a Mr. Aqua 18" cube and would like to purchase a 16" FugeRay Planted+ fixture for it. Will the legs of the Finnex fixture extend out an inch on each side to fit my 18" tank?

Thank you! (Didn't want to start a new thread for this question but let me know if I should've.)

They will extend but the legs are very close to the edge and don't feel secure at all.

Thanks for the pictures, very helpful. On a local forum here, someone mentioned resting the fixture on the screws, extended out a bit, on the rimless tank. It just bit the bullet and ordered 16" Planted+ and will hope for the best.

New light

Just got my new 36" planted plus for my 40b. I bought the ray 2 but felt I needed more light. Plus I like how the planted plus brings the reds out on my 10g. So I have 2 planted plus on my 10g and the ray 2 and planted plus on my 40b. Got some plants on order from h4n and excited to see how it goes. I have to say thanks to the guys that sell the finnex brand. I even bought one of there breeder boxes for my african cichlid fry. Great products and customer support.

Finally arrived. The Planted + is way smaller than I expected.

You should be good - the screw trick will help. I would put a drop of superglue where the plastic feet slides meets the metal housing slots of the light to keep it firmly together.

Just ordered a 24" Ray2 for my 20L. Kind of excited to get it but also kind of worried it might be too much light and I'll be dealing with algae problems. I have pressurized CO2 and fertilizer but I'm pretty new to aquariums in general so still trying to figure out my fertilizer schedule.

Sign me up. I just set up a 48" Ray2 and MonsterRay combo on my 55g.

I'm really liking the super bright 7000K of the Ray2. A lot of people say it makes colors look washed out; but to me it's a refreshing change from looking at the murky swamp-like greenish yellow tint of my over-planted under-lit 20g. And with the MonsterRay added, the colors are sweet.

55g: Finnex Planted+ and MonsterRay, Pressurized CO2 w/ Atomic inline diffuser, Eheim 2217, Eco-Complete, EI ferts. Lemon, Glowlight, and Black Neon Tetras; Harlequin Rasboras; Otos. Staurogyne repens, Hygrophila corymbosa, Ludwigia repens, Ludwigia glandulosa, Red Melon Sword, Wisteria, Water Sprite.

Guess I should join in as I have two, a 12" fugeray and a 12" planted plus. Love both of them.
