The difference between the fluorescent was that big huh?

Thanks, we'll see how it goes when I hang it tomorrow! I'll take a picture with the new light to compare with the existing florescent.

W45 x D24 x H30 (cm) glass thickness 5mm
W45 x D27 x H30 (cm) glass thickness 5mm

I believe the main difference between the Do!Aqua tanks and the Cube Garden is the glass, Cube Garden tanks use 5 sided LIG (Low Iron Glass) while Do!Aqua use regular (green) glass.
I don't have experience with LEDs, does the distance on the light matter?

My tank is 22cm high and I was planning to suspend it 8cm+the bracket height above the aquarium. (Figuring this puts the light at the same height on a 30cm depth aquarium with the bracket) But, maybe I don't need to go that high above the tank?

Thanks for the info on the Do!Aqua. I'd definitely want to go with the ADA high clarity glass on the next tank.
