Hanging lights over my 92g corner

Can anybody help me come up with a solution on how to hang my Chinese sh!tboxes over my corner tank? Ceiling is not an option. Thanks in advance!

people use bended conduit piping, paint it black, drill it into the back of the stand. look up conduit light hanging for reef on google im sure youll find lots. Also a flowerpot hanger off the wall would work too.

hanging plant hangers work good

Some conduit from a hardware store attached to the back of the stand is probably going to be your best bet then. Most places will bend it for you for free too

Do you think my really thin, cheaply made stand could handle it? Click image for larger version

Its not what I want but it's what came with the tank. I'm trying to strategize on how to beef this thing up a bit. Problem is I can't slide it out. Click image for larger version

Two 1x3's hold up the back corner of the tank. I've seen these brand new in the store and they are exactly the same way. I don't get how such little wood can hold up all of this weight.
