What size RayII for a 10 gallon?

Just wanting to make sure. I believe a standard 10 gallon is like, 22 inches across, so would it make more sense to go with a 24 inch light or with the size below? Or is there something that fits better? Thanks

i just got the 24" for my 10 gallon.

You can't get anything smaller, it won't fit unless you improvise by hanging it, etc.

cool, now, what light combo should I get, the 7000/7000 or the 7000/10000?

Aesthetics aside, get the 7000/7000 for freshwater plants. Lighting fixtures with a 10K white point primarily benefit marine photosynthetic endosymbionts.
