The actual water depth is 18"; with the tank mounts, I think the Bimini Sun would sit about 6" - 8" above the water surface. I could always raise it, I guess.
What is your opinion on the best wattage for this tank? Would a 250w be too intense or too hot for this size tank (fairly cool climate here--only occasional hot days in dead of summer)? Or...is the 150w more than enough?
Thanks for your help,
We recommend the 150 watt over that size tank. This will keep less heat, enough light and better look. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
