Would it be much of an issue to run a 3ft suspended t5 light system over a 4ft tank. I worry about light getting to the ends and plant growth there. The problem is finding a 4ft setup that doesnt have what I consider too much light for my applications and plants.

Thank you again. I appreciate any responses.

In my experience, you will have a problem lighting the ends of the tank sufficiently. Example: I have lots of Hygro in my tank, the Hygro in the middle grows faster than the Hygro on the outside of ends of the tank.

I have a 36" light setup.
