Mounting TMC Tile over 15L Pico?

  1. Hi guys,

    So currently I've got a TMC Aquaray Mini LED 400 over my TMC Microhabitat 15.

    Its producing great results, but on such a small aquarium the mount supplied with it is really making it look cluttered.

    I want to suspend the tile about 3 inches from the surface.

    First off:

    - Will this affect PAR?
    - Will this affect evap?

    And secondly, I want to mount it like a pendant. Just a single tile hanging over the surface.

    Any ideas?
    It's on a small cabinet, so I was thinking about buying an old poise lamp and somehow mounting it to the head of it & training the wire down the lamp. but I feel like the wired pendant would look so much nicer.

    Also - I want to keep it on a DIY budget.

    All help appreciated!

    Kris

    If the light at 3 inches above the surface is lower than it currently is then the PAR will be increased.

    Do you have the option to suspend from the ceiling?
