Can someone with a 24" T5 retrofit please measure the total length and let me know? I'm planning a 20H nano for my office and am trying to figure out how much clear left-to-right space I need in the canopy for lights.

Before the jokers comment, I know the bulbs are 24" long. I'm just wondering what the wiring & endcaps add to that length on each side.

Thanks!
Dustin

Bulbs are actually 22" long and depending on the endcaps and standoffs you get, total clearance will be between 22.5" to 24".

Sweet, that'll make things easier since the tank itself is 24" wide.
