And there is a light on the other side you just can't see it.

Yea but they need to be pointing directly at the screen with full coverage of the whole screen like in my vid not from overhead like you have them .

Thats the best I can get them. They're no pointing straight down either. They're at a 45 degree angle and if you follow the line it hits the screen dead center and spreads throughout the whole thing.

Trust me it isn't going to work like it is supposed to. Best think to do is hang them against the glass and hope they are close enough to the screen . If not expect very patchy algae growth with minimal results .

They don't fit any other way. That's what I'm saying. It's going good so far so I'll leave them and if it's too "patchy" then I'll try to move them around.

Will this work if the light is right up against the scrubber? I just cut the reflector do it would fit.

No no if you don't silicon the bulbs in they will get damaged and a potential safety hazard . Look at my pic see the stick on hooks ? That's all you need

What do you mean silicone the bulbs in? The clamps are not going to fall I made sure of that. I have also had a light hanging light that for months with no problems.

I would just be worried about splashing and evap causing creep in the sockets . If it worked for you in the past give it a try
