Will an 18" ray2 fit on my 20" tank?


Does anyone know if the finnex ray2 has adjustable arms or can I not use this light?

The options are 18" or 24" and my tank is 20"....help?

18" wont extend far enough to fit on a 20" tank rim. The option will be to either get a versa top to seat the 18" on, or consider the 24" fixture.

The 18" MIGHT extend far enough, I have a 12" fugeray and it extends to slightly over 14". The Ray2 appears to use the same mounts. If the 18" ends up not extending far enough you could make your own mounts out of thin gauge wire (like the mounts on a marineland led) as the factory mounts slide into a circular recess in the metal body of the light. A few people on here have also hung the fugeray and ray2 by running thin wire through these recesses and running them up to a shelf support.
