How to hang LED light panels

Does anyone have links or pictures of what you have used to hang the 120W led panels? I will have 2 panels hanging over my 4ft 75 gallon tank. It is a wooden stand and a standard tank. No canopy. Don't want to spend $100 bucks on a manufactured one. I want to build it myself from conduit....etc. I would appreciate any pictures or plans on how to do this. Thank you all!

P.S. Hanging from the ceiling is not an option.

No prob! You one you selected sounds pretty simple with the pre-bent conduit and looks aesthetically pleasing.

New light hangar!





Check out what I made this weekend! Have the lights at 50% white and 50% blue right now. Way better than the Current orbit LED!

Thanks! It looks crooked but it is level. I think the window makes it look that way.
