Tried to appease the other half with different lighting. Look how much spread there is with a 15w CFL:



That's with the work light dome about six inches above the top of the tank with a glass cover. Honestly think it should be raised 4-5 more inches. Or some fiberglass window screen needs to be put over the top of the tank.

Guess I can't complain about getting a Finnex fixture but it'll still be too much light for this tank and will have to be wrapped in window screen.

At least the tank will look really cool with a sleek LED fixture.
