At 30"s I would recommend the ray2 personally. So some sort of configuration that acidcitydweller is recommending, but with 2 ray2s. planted+ aren't getting any real PAR at 30's, sorry.

Not familiar with your current fixture, could you slide the light to one side, and add something that is 12"s or less? Such as a Finnex fugeray-R? Or one of their 12" planted+ fixtures?

For something so shallow, you would have to raise pretty much any finnex fixture or face high light. I tried a planted+ on a 20L (12 inches) and it worked, but it was definitely medium to...

Finnex planted+ is what I will be running on my 98G 90"x14"x18". I think 18 inches is a good depth for it.

I use a ray2 and planted+ on my 37G. Keep in mind on the Ray2, the light portion is only 24"s, so you will have a 3 inch gap on each side without any light. (doesn't matter if you don't want to...

Could resell them as "Used" fixtures. In all honesty, if the new fixture has all of the features I'm looking for, I would probably be looking to have to pawn off my planted+s and one ray2 myself. ...

I would recommend 2 Finnex Ray2s + a monster ray, or a planted+ in the middle. For solid centered light.

If you want more control over your light I would recommend two buildmyLEDs.

Personally I'd look into buildMyLED at 25" depth. Sure 1 90 degree won't give your tank 100% coverage, but with a 10000k planted XB, you will have high light.

I use 2 XB series on my 135 cube (36...

If you want the best colors for the plants, I would recommend 2 planted+ 36" to go with your ray2.

Unfortunately Finnex doesnt have the PAR for 25" depth tanks.

If you want very low light at substrate, 1 fixture, medium low is 2 fixtures, medium high would be 3 fixtures (of the planted+).

If you can't remove some of the bulbs (the plants are low light after all), then you can try mollies, gold barbs, perhaps nerite snails might work best though.

It seems like there is a lot on the market and I can't find any reviews. Most I found is that dual stage is better so you don't get a co2 dump. I just want something that will both work and last. ...

135g

This is going on my sumped 135G Cube. I realize I will be losing a lot of CO2 with my hang on back, and my traditional saltwater style sump/refugium.
