Finnex for a 90g

Just bought a 90g on Thursday; has a center brace. Going to go with Finnex LED+ 24/7.

Does it matter if I go with one 48", or two 24" strips?

I'm kinda thinking the two 24", so that I'm not having lights over the center brace.

What says you?

20G long / Finnex Planted + / Marineland C-160 / Tunze Regulator / Fluval Bubble Counter / Cobalt Neo-Therm Heater / Koralia 240 / Rhinox Drop Checker

I think 24 inch would be better too more even exposure. I have the finnex crv 36 inch on my 30 so far works well but do a custom 24/7 the stock one sucks the light is on too long.

get the hlc though if you go finnex, the crv is not worth it even though it has the true 660 red led's. the HLC has a better color temputer 8000k white leds has a nice purple hue to the light and it is cheaper too

Problem w/ 2 24" is the amount of space between the actual diodes.
Though I have no real solid proof it just camera wise always look more problematic.
Moreso than the center brace blocking on a 48".
