Default Picotope light

Love your tank! I'm planning on putting one in the corner of my kitchen, on the countertop. There's 16 in of clearance under the cabinet and the pictope is 8in tall. What kind of light could I get away with mounting it from the cabinet -I could fit an 18 in fixture up underneath there and hopefully have enough light for a jar/vase on either side of the tank. What would you recommend?

have had great results with the Finnex lights (mine are Fugerays), but you would have to rig the mounting, they don't come with an under-counter type brackets. (not that hard if you are a little handy, some pieces of coat hanger and a few screws would do it and be completely out of sight.)

All LED so runs cool and low electric usuage

the Current Led+ would also work well mounted under a cabinet their 18 -24 inch light is actually under 18 inches slightly without legs on it.

The one on the left is some "scud prison" - the main tank had fricken scuds and I turkey baster them out and stick them in there.

The cube on the left now has a family of RCS that started with 3 juvies, here is what it looks like now:

Update..

Had a major die off in this tank, still not sure why but I lost virtually all of the shrimp. Maybe I did something wrong, maybe the office had and exterminator or cleaner in at some point and something transfered from the air to the water -just don't know.

wht I do know is the scuds survived just fine and were out of control - so these little guys (below) have moved in, haven't seen a scud out-and-about in a week
