I have the same fixture over my 40g right now. I was playing around with the idea of having some pipe bent and bolting the pipe to the back of the stand to hold the lights above the tank a little. That way you dont have to worry about damaging the wall or ceiling and its portable.

I was trying to figure out a strong way to hang this. That might be just the ticket. Let me know if you do that and I'd love to see pictures of it.

Im not but its super easy to do. You can either pay a metal fabrication place to bend some pipes and drill some holes or just buy a pipe bender from home depot and do it yourself. Drill a few holes, add some eye bolts, and it will work perfectly. Can spray paint the pipe to match your stand if you want.

Light Fixture legs are a PAIN

Club members of mine have done this I think. I'll check. My club is very resourceful.

Thanks for the input
