    Unfortunately it won’t fit in my sump with all the other equipment I have in there, bought it and it was a lot bigger than I thought. Saying that it’s literally about 1 cm too wide to fit into the compartment I had planned for it in my sump

    Is it the tube that is too wide

    Or the base plate ?

    I had similar issues and got the grinder out

    It’s the baseplate which is too wide. Actually didn’t think about grinding it. Was late at night when I lost the patience with it.
    I have sold it now unfortunately.

    Is the light in a tube down the middle?
    I used to have something similar for growing photo
    And it was a fixed tube so really difficult to keep clean
