I know right? Is there a chance you can hang them? I owuld have hung ALL my lighting fixturs if it werent for these sloped high ceilings I have. I love the look and the availability to the actual tank. It takes 2 people to remove the 6 foot light on my 125g which is a HUGE hassle.

The only other option is to build a brace on the back wall or the frame of the tank stand and attach the lights to that.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Is the tank a two parter or a three parter? I have two support beams on my 6 foot tank so 36" lights wouldnt work so well. But my FW 125g has just one support beam so I have 2 36" fixtures on that one.

I;d def try to see what kind of supports it has. 2 36" inch ones might do the trick! And it would for sure be easier to clean and remove. I'd need 3 24" fixtures for my 125g reef and I thought that it would just look silly. lol

Is a hood going to make a huge difference?

A glass hood or the big black ones? Are you planning on running open top? do you have a picture handy of the tank you'll be getting , maybe we can tell from the picture.

Well at lest you'll know before having to make a decision on lighting. My best guess is that it will be a single brace in the middle which would allow for 2 36"'s. But I guess we have to wait to find out for sure. :-( BOOO
