just be-careful till you see what your corals can take you can really burn your corals with these if your not careful start low turn them up a little every other day till you see how your corals react to them
since I added these lights my coral growth went up about 25%

I use egg crate its a florescent light defuser it can be found at home depot
it lets your tank breath but keeps fish in



I have a wood frame I built to hold the light mounted to my tank stand I built



some just put 2 hooks in ceiling and hang them with cables
if you look at the tank to the left you can see what I mean that light is hung from ceiling

I'm curious, what size tank is that and what types of corals are you growing?
