It mounts from the side if thats what you mean. I think we can put the pole near the top of the canopy underneath and then just slide the harnesses around the dowel. The canopy is quit tall and it should fit, but just.
Just got an 8 foot dowel from lowes and the side mount hardware so I guess we will see how it works out. Fingers crossed it does! lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Just got back from walmart with all the extension cords and electrical crap I will need to hook up the led's. The dowel is mounted at the very top of the canopy so we can just hook the hanging harness from there and they should hang pretty well. Going to run all 3 white cords to a single extension cord, same with the blues. the just plug each one of the extension cords into a timer. Got heavy duty stuff too so it should be able to handle the current which with leds I believe isnt all that much.
ALso might move the biocube fish tonight, the hawk and the combtooth have been chasing and picking on the itty bitty sailfin blenny. he is too cute to have him suffer so hopefully I can get it done tonight. The I will remove the last rock and nuke the entire tank with ammonia for a few days and voila, a perfectly clean biocube with NO aipastia. Darn things are even on my heater and in my skimmer. :-(

Got the four fish from the biocube moved to their new respective homes. Took awhile, boy were they quick. lol
Also managed to save 5 corals too, had to break a rock apart to save one cinnamon paly but there are no aipastia on these corals now. woot! I also broke my stunner chalice into about 4 pieces, trying to glue one to a frag plug now but not having much success.

Just threw in at least a cup of ammonia and actually watched as the aipastia's visible just withered up and died. Happy day! Didint ruin any rock either, took it all out. Just have to mix up the sand so any of those aipastias left can die too. I had a bunch that were growing out of the sand. I figure I will let the ammonia run for a few days and then begin to do the water changes that will get rid of the ammonia. AND then, its off to craigslist for the biocube. it will be a sad day but I really have to sell it, I have way too many tanks. Although even once I sell the cube, the 60g rimless and the 125g i will be buying another tank for the rest of the fish that cant go in the 180g. I am now thinking a 57 rimless. Should be enough room for the mandarin, clowns, clown gobies and the sailfin blenny. Might put the tailspot blenny in there as well, havent decided where he will go.
So I guess my work is almost done for tonight. And tomorrow- THE LIGHTS!
woohoo

If your lights came with the same harness mine came with prepare to ditch it. 4 cables attached to a single hook just doesn't work well. The lights tend to twist and not sit straight.

@dav3- we will be using two mount points on each side. So it should be more stable hopefully
Scooter- Yep, selling the 60g rimless as well


ANyone know how to attach a stunner chalice to a frag plug? The glue is just not sticking. :-(

Just blot the bottom with a paper towel and make it dry as possible before adding the glue. it's probably sliming too much to make it stick.
