I believe I've seen fixtures that you can connect end to end to make a 6' version.

I came across these, maybe this was what I was thinking of before. They aren't LEDs, but a newer type of bulb, T2, and the fixtures can be connected end to end.

I don't know why these haven't never been talked about, everyone's gone past T5 even and went to LEDs...I'd be curious to hear how well these work.

Those are nice and efficient. I need to get a 6 footer. I have a one three foot tank and the rest are 4' or 6'. Looking to get another 6' tank but I want the lights first.

Yeah those will make some long lights, but I haven't really found anyone's personal experience with them yet. I've read how people are apprehensive about them, saying if T5s are so delicate imagine what these are like, or people saying that they wouldn't be strong enough for plants and whatnot. But the site says these T2s are supposed to be more intense than T5. idk. They are so compact, imagine how intense the light would be if you had multiple 6' rows of these things? They're only like 3/4" wide, so you can have oodles of these to fit inside a canopy.

For the fish tank, aquarium light is the most professional, since different fishes have different need for the light, even in daytime and night, fishes also have different lighting needs. So why not people choose led aquarium light for the baby fish?
