    Can anyone reccomend something i can use to hang my luminaire above my tank.

    I am not allowed to put holes in the wall or cealing so it needs to be atachable to the tank or the unit. if there isnt anything i will have to make one.

    Failing that, you could just rest it on the tank rims using the feet supplied...

    that looks good the only problem is my light is wider than the tank and unit, i might make up some L shape brackets and put them down the back of the tank.

    Nice idea, Hagen use them on the now discontinued Osaka. I found them to be a little distracting so i'd recommend a background if you go down that route.

    i was going to get a blue or white background on the tank to hide the pipework. will have to see if the light gets the aproval from the Mrs first if not i will need to buy a 60cm light for the planted tank and use this light on my other tank.
