just a minor update. i had noticed on the second day after installing the canopy that the right side was sagging a bit.
i was going to go and try and fully or partially suspend it from the rear of the stand, but then decided on the quick fix. a small wood shim.
seems to be working so far. i'll keep my fingers crossed.
also got my filters set up how i wanted, trimmed the glass cover plastic stuff to fit the filters and tagged and routed all the cords. timers are in the mail, as well as bulbs for the other canopy fixture.:yes:
