I currently have the two 20w just sitting on eggcrate on top of my tank, easy mounting solution but I'm going to put them in my canopy on my new tank once it's set up.
It's a 75 gallon tank. So that is around 21-22 inches deep I think?
I don't want to mount the lights to the canopy itself. I don't have the canopy on a raise / lower system (and don't want to install one :P). I actually take it off and lay it on the floor when I clean and do water changes. But I will think of something.
I wouldn't be opposed to just setting them on the glass lids / toppers (probably add some little self-stick bumpers to the corners of the lights), just more worried about making the jump to high light and suddenly having an algae outbreak
Just a challenge of creativity if you ask me
