For the folks living in the land of 30″ tanks, trying to choose a light fixture can make you feel like being in limbo with manufacturers often choosing to manufacture only 24″ and 36″ light fixture. Do you get a larger fixture and let it hang loose all tacky like or do you precariously perch the 24 incher and accept the reduced light coverage on the ends of your tank? Although AquaticLife already has dual T5 lamps that can be linked together in multiples of two, the trailblazing new aquarium manufacturer went ahead and outed a full fledged 30″ 4 lamp T5 HO lighting unit, complete with built in digital timer, mounting legs and all. We couldn’t dig up a picture of this new T5 package but we thought the video demo of how to program the digital timer would be just as good. Enjoy.
