Whether you go one 12" or one 24", either would work I think. It will ultimately depend on your flora choices.

i feel like im spamming your thread, sorry i think id go with a 12" and somehow extend it the whole way.. because they dont have an 18" the fixtures are just so sleek and small, and obviously they do a great job! plant-wise i would have anubias, java fern, moss, and crypt. everything low light

Nonsense. Post on this thread as much as you'd like. The 12 will be great for those plants.

Haha don't say that! This thread will be bombs with questions. Haha! Especially because this is the same approach I'm goin to use on my tank.

In just worried about the light not spreading to the left and right sides. The scape I'm doing will have the plant masses on the left and right side. Sort of like the "two island" approach. But They are lowlight plants, so maybe it would be okay?

Is 12" the smallest it comes in? It it comes smaller, maybe get two small ones an put them going from the back of the tank to the front. And spread them over the main plant masses.

Yeah, I am pretty sure 12" is the smallest. Doesn't that new Finnex Ray2 come in 18'? I think it might. It is less attractive IMO, but it's slightly cheaper, the right size, and it likely grows plants just as well.

ill have to figure something out. ive got a while before i really need it anyways. the finnex rayII look okay, but its really chunky and isnt so sleek and slimline as this one. which is why i'd want this one.

The bulb reflections combined with the color of your walls make it look like a sunset background.

Yes, so many babies! I've counted about 30 at one time so far, but who knows how many I really have.

I am pleased with this experiment. I think the lighting compliments the scape pretty well rather than detracting from it. Of course, perhaps just a little bit disappointed in myself for not figuring out the lighting before the contest submission, but there's always next year.

You can't go wrong. These are simply great lights.
