I'll be on the first ones to order the 24" fixture. I already have a couple of Kessil a360 we. Do you have a picture of the 24" fixture yet?
Thanks.
Hello - Please check back later this week and we will have photos of the other sizes. Thanks!

This is great I feel in love with Aquaticlife t5's back in the day. I'm glad your still in the game. This should be game changer for you. When will the 24" be ready to ship?
Hello - We hope to be able to ship by mid-October. Thanks.

Any chance you guys might come out with 60" or make these modular so we can connect two fixtures for custom size?
Hello - Maybe at a later date but not in the beginning. If the demand is there we may, yet shipping 60" long boxes is expensive and they are also prone to damage easily. We will keep R2R posted if we make longer sizes. Thanks.

How many T5 's will be coming with the fixture ? Is it a total of 2 bulbs , 4 bulbs , 6 bulbs? I am loving it and I am looking forward to possibly using it as well .
Hello - The fixture does not include lamps so you may use the lamps you prefer. Thanks.

The fixture will accommodate 4, T5 lamps but they are not included so you may use the brand lamp you prefer. Thanks.

At this time you can not add a third housing for the T5 lamps, but that is an interesting idea. We could possibly do a modular version later if the demand is there. Thanks for the comment!

The fixture at the show was a 36" unit and it was supported by the Halo arms. It did work but I do not like that much weight on the aquarium glass. It would be better to use a mount that attached to the stands to support the weight.

We made the fixture with the two lamps since the ballast operates two and we wanted the full output. The front and back T5 fixtures are operated with independent power cords.

We discussed the dimming of the ballast but the cost increase is pretty hefty. We discussed this with people at MACNA and found that they like the pricing and would ramp up the LED instead since they already had those options included.
