    i am starting to build my new systems a 4x2x2 acrylic system and a percula 120 neither have a halide stand but all the halides have hanging kits how am i best to mount them?

    i tried hanging a shelf over the tank but it does not come out far enough and our celings are too high

    I know they say 20-30 cm above the tank water level but would it be harmfull hanging it 10-15cm from surface????

    if i do need the 30cm clearance how can i hang it safely?

    cheers all

    Can you not put brackets on the wall?

    Like those ones that you would hang baskets on outside?

    yeah i guess i could not really thought of that but not sure if they would be any larger than a shelf and i am just finding the light is not hanging over the tank enough more so with the percula because of the boxwork at the rear of the tank.

    will have a look into that thou might just work if i can find a suitable size Big Thumbs Up
