Surprisingly I got the light at Big Al's. I've called 4 different stores, none carried any light that fit my needs and did not seem to care that much.
Only when I came to the store and wanted to buy 2 Fluvals, I noticed this light on the top shelf. Asked about it, - oh, they said, this is for very low light tanks... When I asked them to open it and check the wattage they were a bit surprised - a solid 25w.
Needless to say, I am a happy camper here. I like this light much better than Fluval, although it is definitely bigger and the part that fixes itself on the glass is a bit too obvious.
So far the plans are for this tank to have lots of plants in it, hopefully covering most of the background.
The fish I really want to see there is 5 or 7 CPDs.
