Led

I have a 32 gal 25x18x18...... I first bought the 18x24 inch that is the front, realized my mistake and ordered 2 of the longer 24 x 36.

So I now have three, I do not use the 24x38 on this tank, seems like overkill as I am trying to reduce the light intensity and time, 8 hours is what I am trying.

The built in timers are great with the exception of you cannot program them to go off and on but once in 24 hours. I would like to be able to program in a siesta during the day, but no can do.
Blue LEDS are on a separate built in timer, which is nice.

I do like the very slim profile compared to my T5 fixtures, but there are no brackets for hanging these fixtures, they sit directly on the tank.

I like the quality of light but well see how the plants respond, this is only the 3rd week and I have just started dry fertz a week ago, so nothing has been consistent for any length of time and about to do a serious trim and move some plants.

I wish I would have ordered one the ATI 24" 4x24 Dimmable SunPower w/ Controller, I should have researched just a bit more before I fell under the allure of glimmering Leds...lol now I realized I spent about the same on these Leds....

I could return them.......any feedback about the ATI SunPower with built in controller would be welcome, maybe in a new thread, I don't want to take this one off topic....

that 24"-36" unit is 24" long, it will be 3' to short on both sides. I just did the same thing, hated it, so if you do it, save the box so you can return it if you hate it.... you could plant shade loving plants around the edge...
