The reason why the lighting fixture wont
fit my bow tank is the tanks length is 13''
at the edges. The lighting fixture is 14''

The legs for the stand will only fit on the corner
of the tank. It needs the 90 degree angle of the corner
to sit in correctly.

I made my own stand that works fine.

I used 14'' 2x4 to make a wood stand like the picture I posted on the first page of this thread, only I cut the wood to fit correctly.

So the corners of the fixture over lap the curve of
the tank by an inch. It doesnt look bad at all.

That is one beautiful tank! Those lights really bring out the colors. Got any other close-up shots?
