    I do not have a open top, it is a fold in have glass flat top.

    I am looking to upgrade my lights but because I have a glass top I need it to stick it underneath.

    Now the Fluval Aquasky is 100% water proof and is able to sit across the top of a open tank, but can also with the fittings be able to stick to the underside of the glass.

    However, this is the only one like this I can find. Anyone know any other automated lights that go under the glass rather than on top??

    Is it a clear glass top? Lights will work on a glass top

    So the finnex plantes + could just be laid on top of the glass?? Or can the side clips fit down the side?

    I removed the black rubber joint on my lid for my 20 high. That way I just have two glass panels. I probably wouldn't go through the effort again because the glass doesn't seem to have a negative impact on my other unmolested glass top. If it became an issue, I'm now on the opinion side of removing the glass entirely.

    All the clips Ive encountered are adjustable and meant to sit over the rim and don't interfere with the glass lid fitting into the trim molding

    Didn't see anything that would allow you to mount the aquasky under the glass when I looked at their website. It's highly water resistant/water proof rated and designed to survive an accidental plunge, but not meant to be wet all the time unless I missed something.

    I have glass tops on all my tanks and a Fluval Fresh & Plant 2.0 on my 75g. Fluval came out with a 3.0 with BT and you can do some stuff with it.
