without upgrading the light?
I've got an Orbit 130W PC
/actinic over my 29 gallon tank. It's 30" long, which sits right on top of the stand with the legs on either side. I want to upgrade to a 40 gallon breeder, but I don't particularly want to add any more wattage. I think with the shallower water level, the lighting is adequate for what I have in my tank.
Problem is this: How do I fit the light I have now over a 40 Gallon breeder when the breeder is 6 inches longer than the lights? I don't think my landlord would be thrilled with me drilling into the ceiling of their apartment. My idea was to find some sort of stainless steel bar cut to fit the tank (front to back), and set the legs of the lights over that on both sides.
Just throwing around some ideas. Open to any constructive suggestions.
