lighting a 75 gallon 48"?????


New member
When getting a light fixture for a 75 gallon tank that is 48" long how big of a fixture should I be looking for (T-5's). Do I want a 48" long fixture, which seems obvious, or do is it o.k. to go with something like a 36"? Just want to make sure i get the right thing and don't get something I don't need.

Yes, you want the 48" fixture. I guess it would be OK to go with the 36 but the 48 is what you really want. Cheers

If you get a 36" your going to have low light areas on the ends. I would go with the standard 48".
