Just make sure you don't pinch the power cords and you can still get your hand in to reach the dimmers.
I had not thought of this. I think that would be my best move. There is not a whole lot of room. Thanks!

That looks nice. Is that your 60 gallon? are you using two 120s there? The light intensity looks a bit low. How bright is it really?

Yes it is a 60 and I'm still acclimating the corals So what you see is not even fifty percent.those are two 120's.

Has anyone seen 60 watt version of these? I'd love to get a 60watt for 10 gallon nano. 120 is too much light for it.
