ZooMed Aquasun

I just purchased a ZooMed Aquasun T5 HO 24" light for my 20g high tank to replace the Marineland double bright I was using. I'm liking it so far, except that if I try to use the brackets to secure it to the aquarium, I can't use my glass top.

Other than just setting it on top of the glass (which I'm doing now) or hanging it from the ceiling (I live in an apartment, so not sure I want to do this), is there any other option I may want to consider?

Well, for anyone else in my situation, I just turned the brackets around so the screws were facing in. That way, since that side of the bracket was shorter, I was able to resting on the glass and still open the lid. The other side of the bracket is up against the outside of the tank to help give it some more support. It's not clamped down, but is still on there well enough and up off the glass a bit.
