If you can, just hamg them and forget the canopy. The size was already addressed. I hung mine on cathedral cieling, so you should be fine imo.

I really like the look of a canopy opposed to hanging (each to their own). But you can use the hanging clips and S hook that came with the hanging kit and just cut four lengths of chain to use with those.



That's what I did with mine (and it can be done better, lol). That's if you really wanted to do the canopy.

Ok so instead of sending the light back I fixed it! So today I'm gonna buy some 2x6s and get the lights on the tank so by the time I build the canopy the tank should be ready for the lights full blast

Here's one crappy pic will add more once I get the right pieces of wood on here so it's 6" off the top of the aquarium...also I put three layers of wax paper to diffuse some of the light and gonna take one off every week...think this will work?
