Finnex Light Spread


I am looking to pick up a few Ray 2s (7 actually) and was wondering how they would work over tanks that are 18" wide

I am looking at one for a 75g (resting on frame), and then the others for a rack being hung over the tanks by a few inches (tanks are 12" deep and 18" front to back)

Ray2 over a 12" deep tank would be VERY high light.

for 18" wide, you will probably need two fixtures. The spread is good, but I think it is around 10 inches or so.

good luck!

yea looking for high light

Only issue would be complete coverage from front to back in the tank (18") from 12" above the bottom

If it's only 10" in a 18" tall tank I don't think I'll be able to use them
