I all i need legs for my light, but the fixture is unknown to me. Its a power compact. I only want the light about 2" above the tank so i can DIY my own lid. Here are pics, and links to legs would be great!

If your into diy stuff and have access to a mill or maybe a router you should be able to make one your self. Or just hang it from the top your making or maybe add a lip you can set it on.

Is there a brand name that you can find on the fixture?

As an aside, your bulbs look like strong candidates for replacement. Intensity lessens and spectrum shifts in old bulbs, and old bulbs can lead to algae issues.

I have been looking and i cant find anything out. I think the old owner mentioned coralife?

That has been another question actually! Where can i buy some an how much do they usually cost?

I think he meant to hang it inside your canopy you plan to build. Another option is to hang it from your ceiling and leave the canopy off.
