    Hi guys could anyone give me any advice on what type of lighting I could get for the juwel lido 120 the tank dimensions are 61 x 41 x 58 (Lenght,width,Depth). Any pendents, T5, PL whatever, just a good strong light at a good price.

    I have that tank and have removed all 3 sections of the hood and put a 150w MH above it, although the MH is affixed to a shelf on the wall so it's not on the tank at all. Before that I had 4 x 24w T5's just resting on the edges of the tank, so yeah, you can put anything you want on there, but you'll have to remove the hood and DIY a mounting for whatever you use.

    @viper357 Is there not a light pendent that will fit the tank without me having to mod it?

    Yip, you can get pendants with adjustable legs that rest on top of the sides of the tank, best bet is to shop around and see what is available out there, you can get MH's or T5's or LED's or combo units, something like these...

    But remember that if you remove the hood and put a pendant on top then your evaporation will increase considerably, so if you haven't got an auto top-up unit I would definitely recommend looking into getting one. :)
