Hey everyone, I've got a 1000 gallon tank that I'm looking for new lighting options for. It's a fish only tank but I may want to throw some frogbit in there and use java moss and maybe other low light plants that I can attach to some huge pieces of driftwood.
Currently lighting the tank are 2 48", dual t8 shoplight fixtures. I'm looking at replacing those with either 2 Finnex Ray II's or 2 Buildmyled.com fixtures, both in 48" lengths.
I'm just looking for recommendations for the tank to give me the best spread and quality of light for my dimensions, which are 8'x4'x4'.

No takers on advice for lighting this beast, I see.:icon_smil I went ahead and ordered 3 custom freshwater fixtures from AJM Reef. The Finnex didn't seem big enough or bright enough for such a deep tank and my budget kind of kept me from getting the number of fixtures I would've liked from Buildmyled. Can't wait to see these lights over the tank. They should be a massive improvement over the shop light fixtures. Pics and impressions coming soon!
