The Ray 2 emits light from a very narrow center strip, and this causes taller plants to cast shadows over the front and back of the tank, and also causes my stem plants to all grow toward the middle of the tank.

If you need to make it bigger, wider would actually be an improvement in my book. If it was several inches wider (even up to 6") and the lights were spread out more across it, I'd prefer it.

I wouldn't want thicker, but also wouldn't not buy the light because of it.
Super input. Thanks!

I agree with AnotherHobby. A wider light would be good and the slim design was not the main contributing factor for my purchase.

From what I have now, it looks like the new fixture is going to be 4.5" wide unless changes are made. The RAY2 is almost 3".

I agree with the others, low profile is important, 5" wide is no problem at all - sounds like another winner!

Okay, now that's just taunting us! Any better pics?

Also, are we to expect early 2014 release?

While I do like the slimness of the Ray II, something wider would also be nice. I would have no problem with something as wide as 6" if you needed to make it so. I really do like the minimal height of the Ray II, so if you could keep the new light flat, that would be awesome. Flat and wide, the way to go!

Please add me to the club. Love my Ray 2, Fugeray, and Fugeray-R for the tanks they're on. No pics of them right now - the lights are great, but lately my efforts haven't been

Count me in! Just received my very first Finnex product this week and I've been receiving non-stop compliments. My plants were dying, so I decided to try the 24" Fugerays. Hopefully this will help the growth of my plants.

Here's a photo of my low-tech tank on it's first week with the Fugeray:
