I am building 2 tanks this summer.   I am looking at AH supply for the light

ideas?   I am not keen on building a big wooden box/canopy so I am looking
for other ideas.  Tanks are 55 and 75.  Thanks.

I use a U-shaped plastic tray made of black plastic. A local plastics store (TAP Plastics) cuts and bends it for me and fabricates the ends. I can send you the height to use for AH Supply lights. Took me a couple of tries to get it right. You mount the lights by drilling and tapping small plastic blocks, then gluing them to the inside of the hood. Machine screws then hold the lights to the blocks. Same for mounting the ballast. Write if you have more questions. I have a lot of digital pics on how to do this somewhere.
