Couesfanatic I just put my 12 inch fugeray on the mini m. Like anotherhobby, I do not think that it would work. The legs are too spread out for it to hold. It needs to be hung if you are going to use it, or find other legs.

CPDzeke Whoops, again, I mistake the fugeray. I'm still pretty sure I saw another one with the ray 2 on it. The tank is PeterN1986's desk tank.

AnotherHobby I measured my FugeRAY 12" this morning for you. I was able slide the legs out a little ways past the body, and I could actually get them out to 14" but they seem very unstable there. I wouldn't do it. They really don't seem to be meant to work like that, and about 12.25 seemed to be the widest they'd go and still maintain ideal stability. The 14.17" width of a Mini M is a definite no go for this light unless you hang it.

Couesfanatic wheres that?

CPDzeke I just found a tank that someone used the 16 inch ray 2 on!

CPDzeke Fantastic!
I am not sure about hanging from ceiling yet.

Couesfanatic I have the 12 inch fugeray on my Mini S. I have a Mini M coming in on Monday. I can let you know monday. I will be hanging mine with fishing line. It weighs next to nothing and will look a lot cleaner.

I just put this light on the mini s last week, it is pretty bright and my plants have been growing faster. It puts out a lot of light, i'd be curious to see if it would do hc. I think if you kept it low you could.

Bend some hangers to fit in the slots where the legs go, paint them silver and then hang it to the ceiling with fishing line. Thats what I'm planning on doing. I will be trying to grow E. belem hairgrass with the light, pferts, aquasoil and metricide.

CPDzeke Darn. Archaea time!

cclaeys the ones I have are pretty much the length they state, there isnt a huge amount of bow on the legs and they only are lifted a little, I dont think you are going to be able to stretch it out to what you want

I have the 12" and will extend somewhat beyond 12", but I'm not sure if it'll go out to 14". Unfortunately it's at work and I couldn't tell you for sure until Monday.

As for growing HC... in a 10" tall tank like yours I'd think it should be fine.

Couesfanatic Do they make a 12 inch Ray 2?

The ray 2 is gunna be a ton of light on a Mini M.

Finnex Ray 2 for Mini M?

I was just wondering if the Finnex ray 2 16 or 12 inch will fit on a Mini M. I would prefer the 12" because it is cheaper and extendable if I want to mod it, but if I can use either it would be great.
