The riser legs can be purchased separately. I have the Coralife 2x96w Lunar Aqualight. I uploaded a few photo's to my gallery, they are not great shots but you get the idea.

Thanks for the pics. Are those legs designed for you light? And how did you cut the "egg crate" so perfect? It looks like it was designed to cover the tank!

Thanks! My tank has about 80 lbs if LR in it and about 20lbs of LR rubble in the sump. I do not have a canopy. I use the Coralife 4 x 65 watts CF lighting. I go topless becuase it allows for better gas exchange and with only CF lighting, I get better light penitration and my corals like that. Having a glass hood on the tank would greatly reduce the amount of light they get.

I just found that www.petsolutions.com sell SS-Stands (originally designed for the JBJ light fixtures) for about $20. Maybe they could work with other fixtures as well...

I bought the lights and legs from http://www.hellolights.com/362xcoluaqde.html. The legs are an accessory from Coralife. I cut the eggrate with a small hand saw and it was a pain to do the bow. I split it into 2 pieces just like the glass canopy that came with the tank. It makes for easy removal during tank maintainance. Good Luck

thank you. it is still growing, it has been up since dec of last year. but now that i got a job at the lfs i get every thing (fish corals and every thing else like food and tanks and such) for cost. so it will be growing fast in the next few months.
