I've definitely got no complaints on my light. It is a bit bright, so I probably wouldn't do it without floaters.

Ok, but it still looks spotty. It's not a uniform distribution of light.

haven't really been active on here in the last couple of years but just picked up the 5B yeasterday and have been looking at lights for it. i was thinking the Marineland Single bight which from what i can find is supposed to produce 300 lumens. thing is i really don't understand lumens that great so not sure what this would count as in light range.

Well welcome back. Yeah that's a confusing distinction. I like single brights better.

Is the 5B taller or wider?

Can we not call them 3b, 5b and the like?

They're really only distinguishable by their volume.

If the 3.2G is the one that they designed to hold 5 compartments of water.

5B the is the 3.2 gallon that has 5 sections (each section is for a betta so thay call it a 5B), the 3B is like 1.5 gallons (12x6x6) and only has thre compartments for bettas thus the 3B name. i work in a pet store and have to stock these when we get them and i was confused about them 3B and 5B names at first.
