I need the dimensions of a T5 retro kit:
1. length of bulb with end caps included
2. width of bulb and end caps
3. distance from outside of bulb or end cap (whichever is greater) to the mounting of end cap

Trying to start planning before i order the kit

Thanks

Ok ill measure when I get home if someone doesnt beat me to it. Oh and realize too the brand of reflector determines how wide they are and could change the number you can fit. What size tank and how many you shooting for. If you want to maximize it and get fancy you can build them in an arc and really get a bunch of bulbs.

Note the manuf. of the endcaps- I have a feeling their dimensions vary.
