I've purchased a four-bulb 48" lighting fixture from Home Depot. It's
cheaper than a two-bulb aquarium light strip, but frankly, if I had the
money, I'd spend it on the aquarium fixtures, to avoid the hassle and
This fixture was designed to be wired into the ceiling of your house. It's
a flimsy metal framework, with no support from below. I got someone to wire
it, but how do you adapt it to sit on top of the aquarium?
Can you rest it on a plank of wood, stretched across the tank? Although I'd
still need to find a solution to enclose the fixture. What about the
material for a canopy, any insulation, or how far you need to keep the
canopy from the heat of the bulbs? I guess the temperatures aren't quite
high enough to burn wood, but it still doesn't feel quite safe to me.
Any advice, web sites you'd recommend?
