Do light strips need to be on legs?
Mine rest on top of my glass tops.
I'm guessing you're topless?

I've been light hunting and I've run across legs before it just looks like they are brand specific. If it's a coralife or something similiar you might have a shot. Does it have holes where the legs could go or does it look like a metal leg slides out of it?

Ah, makes sense. My water stays right at 80F so not a problem for me.

Here's a google shopping link.
