Thanks guys, you're giving me a lot to go on.
One of my big questions remains that if I get the diamond fixture from Home Depot (or any other light like it), will I be able to just set it on top of the tank or will I have to find some way to suspend it above?
sdylanh, I love the idea of LEDs and basically never having to worry about the thing again, so if I think I can pull something like that off it may very well be the ticket.
bridroid, that's great to hear, as that was my one major concern with that route as the tank will likely be in the bedroom.
BBradbury, are you suggesting the glass top would support something like the fixture we were discussing earlier? If so what's the best site you'd recommend for purchasing something like that? Also, what's the best place to purchase solarmax products if I go that route?
funkman, I had looked into Odyssea fixtures and had not seen many great reviews on their stuff so will likely shy away from them.
