Any news? No one can help? I'm in the same boat, I'll get a 24" Ray II DS, will the legs sit on a custom 26" wide tank (rimless)?

The actual fixture runs true to size, as you can see from my blurry cell phone pic the legs can get you an extra inch from either end. It only leaves half the length of the rail slide in the aluminum housing though - I would go for it myself, but I would glue the rail to the slide with superglue, silicon, anything to make the mount a little firmer.

I'm setting up a 18" Ray 2 (dual 7k) on a 18" Mr. Aqua cube. it fits perfectly and spans the entire tank without hanging over the edges whatsoever. The actual led emitters are about 1" above the rim. Don't have plants yet so I can't comment butter results, but from the research I did prior to choosing this light it sounds like it'll be good for medium light to the low end of high light plants, with co2 being optional.
