If you already have the fixture, either dim the lights or dont run all the bulbs at once if you dont need them. You could also raise the fixture up until you reach the proper par.

Yeah, I bought two 36" fixtures to cover the 72" on my 125g. If they had a 60" I probably would have gone that route as well.

thought so. how'd you stain it?

doing an in wall 125 in the basement on a 6' wide wall and something like that would be really awesome, i think.

nothing out of the ordinary with the staining just used a foam brush, i cant remember the exact color i used. if you Google pallet wall or just wood wall you'll see a lot of examples

for sure, what i love about it is that it fits with almost any style; modern, contemporary, industrial, rustic , w/e

I love what you have going right now with all the negative space. I am assuming that's basically the plan from your sketch. Should look really nice once you add some slopes and everything.
