What's a good light for a Cichlid tank, it's 72" long and I'm finding not many in that length? The tank has black background, with sand..Thanks

I'm not expert but you don't need much light for a cichlid tank. They prefer lower levels of light. That said, you could easily find a light that's 48 inches and light up the middle of the tank and it'll have a cool lighting effect.

Is it a planted tank with small cichlids, or a rift lake tank with no plants?
