I got my lights and skimmer this weekend. I ordered the 120w full spectrum dimmable LEDs.
I am not sure how to mount them though. My original plan was to add some eye hooks into my canopy and mount them in there, but that only puts it about 2 inches above the water, and I dont get enough spread to light the whole tank (30 inch tank).
Now Im thinking I should just hang the light above the canopy? The canopy is an open top style with 2 glass lids that can be removed. I can also cut the cross bar out to give it a full open top. I need to be able to take the canopy off to work in the tank bc there is no opening in the front, and its too tall for me without a stool without the canopy. Lol.
How does everyone hang these lights? Im really bummed I cant make it work INSIDE the canopy bc I wanted a nice clean look, but I dobt even want to risk it after seeing how little room I have.
My only other option is to return this light and go with something longer that will fit the tank better.
What did the fish say when he swam into a wall? "Dam!"
