right now i am using my old current usa nova extreme light that i used on my reef tank. Its a t5 that houses 12 bulbs. I am only running 4 and it produces a nice light. This is only temporary its just hard to find 72 inch lights. I youtubed the current usa satellite led and i was pretty impressed with it. I am wanting to switch to an led fixture. Do they make a 72 inch of that model?

Last time I checked, no they do not make a 6ft fixture. I am using a 4ft fixture on my 125g though and it has no troubles lighting up the tank. Unless you want somethin that's super bright I think this will do the job for you.

Rush. How do you have it set up. Do you have it laying on top of the tank or suspended above the tank
