I had a similar unit before I replaced it with a tank mounted fixture.

I found no elegant way of hanging a big black brick above such a small tank.

There are ways. The Radions are nothing but a black brick and they look great above my tank.

Yeah, but a 55 is no Nano.
And Radions are hardly 'bricky'.

Reviews say it can support soft corals. Yay or nay? I'm still looking. I really don't want to go above the $150 mark.

Just found this I could pair with the Taatronics. Very cool.

You could easily fab something up to hold the light. Especially if its not too heavy. A pair of tall "L" bracket mounted to the stand or to a board sitting between the tank and stand. Use small chain to hold the light below the bracket. Lots of DIY things you can do in almost everything. Just boils down to how big your wallet is versus how crafty you can be.

Very true. I'm not very crafty but what the heck lets go for it.

I used a BrightSky hanging kit.

Similar thing to this but in full black.

This is what it looked like on my 10G:

I mean... I hated it, but it's upto you.

Doesn't look that bad to me. Like I said I'm not very crafty to begin with.
