That light is meant to sit on top of a glass lid. You can prob mount that inside a canopy, but you will have to build it yourself. Standard canopies won't hold an enclosed fixture like that.

Another option would be a wood canopy meant for reef lights. These are big things that sit on top of the tank. I have seen them at PetSmart, but they are sold with the stand, not separately.

Personally, I'd go with a glass top, or leave the tank open top & hang the fixture from the ceiling.

Thanks.

I got smart, called the seller and went to her house today and picked up the lid.

For the time being, I do not want a glass top. I have no problems with the plastic/glass hybrid top that came with the light, as a kit.
