Hi Again,
My tank is a 20 high with the 36 watt kit over it.I set it up in january and living here in Iowa I don't have a fan on it yet.I will see what happens when it starts warming up here.I have it vented really well so the tank doesn't heat up too bad as of yet.................Mark W.

::Ashley,
:: I working on a 29g viv for some bicolors too. I went with a 55 watt kit from AH supply but haven't made the hood yet.I have a 36watt cf light on my kahlua and creams tank and it seems to work great.So, I guess it's up to you............Mark W.
