Hmmm can you run some air line tubing all the way thru the bulkhead and out the bottom ? If you can having both ends out of water should quiet it down a lot.

Took the drain line all the way into the water and added a PVC pipe to take the overflow almost all the way to the top and it is quiet. Thinking of getting a Maggie muffler for it or just makeing one.

I held one over my current tank and it didn't seem to be as bright as my t5. But that was just one. Not sure how I am going to hang them under my canopy yet but I guess I will figure it out.

I used stainless steel eye screws in my canopy. Took the clips that come with the hanging kit and just hung them without the wires. Pretty simple but depending on your canopy you may have to add some bracing to strenghthen it and to put the eye screw into.
