If you keep the acro and the anemone at the same distance from the lamps as they were before, yes, but you mean this to be temporary, correct? You are going to want lighting that is suitable for a 4' tank ultimately.

Just got mine hung up after a trip to the hardware store and a bit of playing around, this is roughly how they will be.

First is just the whites, second is whites/blues.

All on 100% just to see how they look

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

Beautiful tank Magma. What are the dimensions? I would love to see how it progresses as you stock it.

72x20x20 on the main display with a central overflow and 2 returns (one on each end) Sump is 60L x 16.5W x 16.5H.

Hoping to have the tank setup and ready to go before august, but its already sat in my living room for almost a year...

since I built my own stand it was a bit easier to mount the light hanger
I added a brace on either side to hold the wooden dowel in place and to be the main support I also used 2 flag pole brackets
I cut the dowel into 3 36 inch sections I found 2 pvc elbows that I screwed into dowels for the bend
the 2 posts are basically mounted like a flag pole on the sides
so it can be removed when working on the tank
I was surprised how sturdy it was and just worked out perfect
nothing fancy just a little well thought out planing
I used the cable hangers over the post to hang light I also added 2 little brads to keep the cable from slipping from side to side holding light straight

My tank has a canopy over it. Can these lights be put under it?

How much room is inside the canopy, the units are about 2.5" deep but you need to leave space for air flow. Otherwise I dont see why not.
