The legs do slide out to adjust, but not a huge amount. The fixture itself is 23 5/8" long and the legs look like they could extend out to maybe a max tank width of 26". This doesn't matter to me as I'm just setting it on my glass top.

The light color seems great...I'm not perceiving any yellow (I got the 7K/7K version). The light spread for each LED is also very impressive. I put my hand directly against the splash guard to block the light from numerous LEDs and expected it would create a giant shadow on the floor....nope. There was a vague dimming affect on one side, but I had to look for it.

Sorry for turning your thread into an improptu review...I'll try to post some pics in a few days.

This is awesome, thanks for the update. Do you notice any difference with the light on the sides since it is shorter than your tank's width?

I'm at work so I can't say, but I can provide you with a quote from Lowe from when I asked him if that was going to be a problem for me.

"Near the bottom should be fine if no tall plants are blocking useful light, however, even though the spread of the LEDs are at 120 degrees, Tall plants on the side may not be getting enough light. Just something to think about. Hope this helps!"
