You should be fine..


just for reference..40B and a bit short (the light) but this gives you an idea of the height..

Nice. Bet I could build some kind of riser out of lumber and paint it black, make it aesthetically pleasing.

Edit: Kens Fish got the 48 3.0 back in stock so Im going to give it a shot. Id like to keep this thread going, if possible, for informational purposes. If the 3.0 doesnt work out, it can always be returned in favor of something else.

Hi @varanidguy

Yes, it is likely that the height accounts for the improved light balance not only from light directly from the fixture with the 120 degree lenses but also internal reflection off of the glass sides of the tank.
