So I’m setting up a new 30L tank which will be 90% Acropora with probably a torch and Goni or two. I really would like to run a t5 led hybrid but I haven’t been able to find anything suitable. The issue is the back to front (width?) of the tank. It’s only 11” of water space and every fixture I’ve seen has been much too wide.
Any suggestions on where to look? Thanks!

edit. Tank is 36” long and 12” deep

Any other ideas folks?
Ebay odyssea 4 bulb t5 fixture, with 2 blue plus, 1 coral plus, 1 aquablue special. 2 orphek reefbars. In blue. Put 1 bar on front side 1 in back. Set the lights on timers, so bars come on, then t5 later, t5 off first then bars.
Orphek is supposed to be releasing a controller for the bars here soon. I think you will be under 400 with bulbs and all.

That is another option, to mix a light bar like orphek, sb reefbar, reefbreeders, etc with a T5 fixture. Although I don't think you'll fit a 4 bulb + a bar on an 11" wide tank, but a 2 bulb would work.
Says 7.5inch wide so plenty of room.
