Best Lighting Fixture for 6 foot long tank???

  1. tommy jr. Member Member

    So I built a custom light fixture for my first 180 gallon and it was A LOT more work than I had originally thought!!!!

    Long story short........

    I bought a second 180 gallon 6 foot long tank (24" wide and tall) and would just like to purchase a light fixture for it (less work and headaches lol).

    I would like to hear what fixtures others have on their 6 foot long tanks and where they were purchased.

    I would like to go with a medium to high light set up, will be running Co2, and will have a freshwater community in there with a variety of plants.

    ANY AND ALL SUGGESTIONS / INFO WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

    Mine has two 3 foot fixtures - each holds two lights.

    Two 3 foot T5HO fixtures with 2-3 bulbs in each fixture.

    I like coralife lights. But the T5HO i have right now, I bought at a indoor garden place not sure of the brand. Great price too!
