You could make a clothes rack out of pvc and hang the lights from that

Alright so it looks like I'll be getting dry rock instead of the live. Not a problem! It's pretty cool to see the transformation dry rock takes from dry to live. Will be getting 40 pounds of Marco rocks at $3 a pound.

Should I protect the bottom of the tank? It'll cost me about $60 in HDPE.

Would the bottom glass be fine if I were to just lay it on there? I think I might cut the bottom of the rock to make it flat so it lays on the glass flat.

I never worried about the bottom no one looks through the bottom lol I do cut my rock so theres no points sitting on the glass though, dont want any pressure points. I'd still get a small piece of live rock (2-3lb.) to add some different live forms to the tank. If you cover the bottom with HDPE glue sand to it it will look like a sand bed

How tall is that lighting bracket? The hangers on those Tao's are about one foot long you could fold the cables and shorten them but it will hang at around 6in.
