im looking for a t-5 fixture for a 40gal regular tank. it will be set up in my classroom and then moved home and back again during the summer. eventually it will be used as a frag tank too. should i get the giesman 4x39-36'' or the sun supply tek 4x39-36''? i like the looks of the mounting hardware for the sun supply tek. i cannot hang the light so i must mount it to the tank.

Thanks for your post, since your unable to hang the fixture I would recommend the Sunlight Supply Tek Light but keep in mind these do not come with the bulbs and the mounting braket is sold separately.

You can find bulbs for the fixture here you can also find the mounting bracket here

Another option you may want to consider is the

Current USA Fluorescent Nova Extreme Fixtures

This particular fixture includes the bulbs, mounting brackets and a 1 year manufacturer warranty.

I hope that this information helps, if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at 1.800.566.3474
