opinions please

http://www.hamiltontechnology.com/sh...t+Fluorescents

This is a light that i am considering. I have a 90 gallon bowfront and I can only fit a fixture that is 12 inch wide. I only keep the canopy on half the time bc its easier to work on the tank, thats the reason for not going retro. Anyway opinions on the fixture would be appreciated. Its the second one down- the one with 2x175 2 x96.

I have a similar fixture over my 58 -- 3 feet long, 2 *175 + 2 * 96 PC, I am very happy with it. I have had it for over 4 years now. Now that is it winter time heat isn't an issue, but in the summer time it gets a bit warmer, but a couple of clip on fans does the trick.

Here is an older picture (( tank is different now )) but the light fixture is the same .
