    Hi folks

    I want to add another LED light to my Dennerle 60L cube (38cm x 38cm square)

    Currently I have a Fluval Aquasky LED 2.0 light which is great for the existing plants and shrimp, but I want to grow some grasses emergent at the back, so I need another light source because the emergent plants will be above the existing light fixture.

    What are my options here? If I buy another Fluval LED I can set the sunrise / sunset the same as the main light, which would be ideal, but it would need raising up about 18" or so.

    Does anyone know if I can buy some legs or something for them? Don't really want to drill brackets into the wall and there's nothing above the tank I can hang anything from.

    The gooseneck LEDs I've seen are far too short for this.

    Adny advice appreciated!

    Cheers

    Those brackets look like they might work, thanks.

    actually that's not a bad idea, I've got an uplighter next to the tank maybe I can utilise that

    @tiger15 thanks for the suggestion but I'm really looking to light the emersed plants from above
