I was searching for a DIY LED hanger for my 150 gal long but wasn't able to find one. So I decided to make one anyway using EMT conduit and fittings then painted it black. Here is how it looks if you decide to make one for your 125 gal.

It's 1/4 inch vinyl sheet from Home Depot and using aluminum bars bent at buttom to support. Same bars aligning the 3 LED fixtures. White electrical tape for rims and corners to hold them together.
