Great idea but not for me.
I painted it black for a guy I hung a halide pendant for. It came out nice...

I managed to find my studs, exactly 2ft center to center, and running perfect with my tank. So I put in a few eye bolts rated for 60lbs each and they lined up within an inch of where I need them to be.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you have an electrical problem!

I hung it 10 inches above the water line only cause I have 90 degree lenses and if I went any higher there would be shadowing on the sides,and if I hung it any lower there way too much for the coral to handle cause they are bright!

how easy are the hanging kits to adjust?

Also does anyone have a picture of the kit? I cant seem to find a good picture which shows how it works...
