Looking around on ebay I found this fixture which is not only made in the USA, but also less than half the price you pay for other fixtures. Probably brighter too.

Not claiming to be an led expert but I'd say it would be good for softies in a 10g

Like the independent 2 channels, a bit short at 10 inches. Might work nicely on 5 gallon tanks?

I have a 12 inch cube so finding a fixture type light of any kind is hard.

Currently running an ABI 12 watt par 38 which is good but I had to figure out a way to hang it over the tank.

You should have went with a more powerful par38....i have a 18w over my 5.

There are a couple things that come to mind lighting a 12" cube...

AI prime (HD)
Kessil A80
Radion xr15

Led group buy cree lumia 5.2 DIY fixture

For such a small tank you are going to have a hard time getting away from leds though... there just isn't much else available

I have a 36 watt that was burning my zoas. I'm not going to keep anything except soft corals so I went with less wattage. I don't want to repeat the constant chemical stability issues I had with my last SPS dominated nano, I just want to do a water change every so often. LOL

I have some dark spots around the back corner area, since the lights are probably
Only a few inches above the water.

Hydra 52 on a biocube 29 with softies and Lps= killer. Do you need that much power/ dollars to run lps and softies? Also, is it mounted with an open top?

Yeah its an overkill, but i had one not in use, n it fits inside the canopy. Plus if i want sps kater im all good. Peak settings is at 38 or 40% only..

I run a Kessil 160 on my Nuvo 30 and it works awesome. The 80 is a nice little light.
