I just cut the glass piece down enough to fit the filter. I did this along a short side (looked better and easier to cut). A glass cutter from Lowes/HD is only a few bucks.

Yeah.. I guess I'm probably just going to go with the T5HOs. I was hoping for more response from others that may have also compared. Given my measurements the LED floods aren't close to worth it!

I am by no means an expert, but that looks really good! I'm guessing you will definitely want more light. I had a 5g and just used a couple of CFL spiral bulbs from Home Depot and it did quite well....
