    Hello Everyone,

    My wife is taking her first stab at a Vivarium this year! We are thinking of using something like an 12x12x18 Exo Terra or Zoo Med for a couple of thumbnails. My previous vivs have all been over 20" long and I have really enjoyed using the Finnex Planted Plus 24/7 led light fixture. I like to display all my vivs and it's great that I can enjoy them all day and still have them on display if I have guests over at night. Unfortunately, the smallest size Finnex carries is a 20". Does anyone have a good alternative for the Finnex for this size tank? I really don't want a light that is either on or off. I get annoyed that they won't always be on when I'm awake!

    Also, is that size tank okay for a couple of thumbnails? I am normally a go bigger type of guy.
