Anyone know if a Finnex Ray 2 36 planted will be enough for a 40G Breeder tank that I want to be high light and carpeting plants? I'm moving everything from my 55G acrylic monstrosity that is super old to a 40G Br tank in the next few months and I'm not sure if I need to get a second ray 2, or maybe a fugeray, or if i'm good as is.

Just ordered and paid for my new 30" Finnex Planted + led for my 29 gallon tall tank. Hopefully it will arrive in less than a week, anyone have any idea how long standard free shipping generally takes?

The finnex light is nice but they really need to redesign the stand. The stand brackets are not long enough to fully support the light.

I leave the lights on from 11am to 7pm red/white only. They sit 1 1/2" above my 20 longs versa top on the standard Finnex legs.

Here's what mine looks like atm. (Ignore my water level it needs a top up)

Currently have a 36" planted+ on my 45G bow front, about to order another finnex light.


Ignore the cleanliness or lack thereof, this is right after cleaning time.

Ahh, the Ray2 and MonsterRay combo is one wicked setup. There should be a special badge for those of us who have both.

I got mines within 2 or 3 days of placing my order. I'm in philly, so it will probably be the same for you in New York.

Received my 30" Planted Plus the other day and have only had it on a 10 gallon tank with some mini pellia and recovering flame moss. I have only had it on the tank for a couple days now and already seeing noticeable growth on everything. The color is so pristine and can't wait to put it on my 29 gallon tall in next couple days and see the Xmas moss on my newly formed moss wall explode. Definitely loving my new light and can't wait to get another in future.

Mine took more than a couple due to weekend but was definitely worth the wait.

I was thinking of that same combo either that or 2 planted+. Would you mind showing a picture of how your tanks looks with the ray2 and monsterRay

I tried taking pictures, but they are very misleading. I don't know if it's my phone or what, but the colors in the pictures do not look anything at all like in real life, and it would give you the wrong impression.
