I use a nicrew G2, I would say it is adequate for a none technical tank. Nothing fancy. I have an old model, don't know what the new ones are like. I use mine with a single ramp timer which makes it a bit finicky because it really requires two ramp timers.

I've got a fluval aquasky 2.0 on my 6ft aquarium. 135 Watt. It's not quite long enough, so it'd be perfect for a 5ft! 🙂 hope this helps, it's a fab bit of kit

True, they are expensive! About £135 I paid. However if it's plants, it'll be a worthwhile investment 😊

Yes, it has extendable brackets. It depends how you want to attach it, my tank doesn't have a lid so it's perfect. Here's mine...

I just wanted to mention that I love the Fluval 3.0 plant light and my plants have done very well. There is a person on Etsy called WaterWerksSolutions who makes risers for the 2.0 and the 3.0 Fluval lights. I bought the riser for one of my open top tanks and have been very happy with them also.
