I just bought a lighting bracket from aquastyleonline.com. It comes in 2 sizes, 24" 48". I had to cut mine to make it 36". Works perfectly! Only thing I'm a tad worried about is the screws rusting...

Hey Huma, not sure if you're asking me, but I need a canopy. We have 4 kids who love throwing balls. I'd hate for anything to go into tank. Also my tank isn't drilled so I thing my DIY overflow would look hideous.

I built a canopy and mounted my leds in the canopy. leds are approx. 7 inches above the water I have 90 degree optics...see pics. below.

The led fits perfectly in the hole on the top.
