So im having a slight issue with my setup configuration. Im currently using a penguin hob 200 for water circulation, problem is my lights are coming in this week and has 2 inch clearance over the tank with mountin legs, it is a 14 inch fixture width by 36 long, 2" high, my tanks slightly smaller then the width at 12 5/8"

I have two dilemmas. 1 being the penguin filter needs 2 3/4" clearance above tank and under light. 2 how can i cheaply ditch the hob? Seeing as anything sitting in my display tank now that sits more then 2" out of the water is not an option?

Update, added a sump, and switched to distilled from tap! Ammonia spike is starting to slowly come down!!! Was at 4 two days ago, todays reading 1ppm! Lights are going to be here friday, then waiting on my pumps from ebay probably gonna be another month before they get here, at least untill then my tank will be sturdy, kinda sucks that i cant put anything in eveen after it cycles.. As ill have almost no water movement untill my pumps come in! Using the hob to cycle the tank, i have a small pump coming in i plan on using as a powerhead which should be here anyday, and i ordered my 550 gph pump today

Do they really sell 5 gallon jugs in the fishing aisle ?
