Have you considered a hanging Power compact suspension? You can get them in
the exact length also for the tank and they are 100% quiet. They have a bit
different look but much of the same good issues are still kept.
JBJ makes some real nice and Reasonably priced fully finished units.
Otherwise you can come up with a DIY lighting box and A&H kits etc and hang
it or place it on a rail to elevate it also.
You'll be happy with that also. Less heat, problems, knocking, bulb issues,
spill over.
