I can't directly answer your question without knowing the dimensions of your 2.5 gallon tank. Assuming it's a "regular" tank, it'll be 13 inches long. The smallest light is 18 inches long, so no, it won't fit your current tank.
Thank you for your question Jules15. The strip lights are designed to be placed on top of a Versa-Top (hinged glass hood) or to be used as replacement lights on Aqueon Full Aquarium Hoods. These should not be placed directly over water and are designed to have a glass or plastic screen between them and the water.

how many gallons is my fish tank 48'x 21'x 13' and what size hood will i need for it?
Thank you for your question Angie03. An aquarium that measures 48" wide x 13" deep x 21" tall is 55 gallons. You could use either a 48" Full Deluxe Hood or two 24" Full Deluxe Hoods and let them rest on the cross-brace in the center of the aquarium.
The biggest concern I would have in putting a UVB lamp into one of these fixtures is the wattage. If you kept under 15 watts on the 12" strip-light or 25 watts on the 20" strip-light this fixture would work.

Does this item have a reflector?
I plan on using it for a UVB but need a reflector so my chameleons cage is brighter.
