Best way to raise light above tank?

Looking for a real simple way to raise my odyssea fixture about six inches above the water. I wish I came with legs. About my only complaint with them

Doh! So simple I over looked it and I'm a fan of the KISS method lol.

Also I noticed a funny spelling error making it sound like I have no legs but rest assured, my legs work wonderfully haha

Thanks buddy.

Here's what I just did for mine. I have the reptile dual light domes, I have 2x23W CFL's in them and made a L bracket out of wood, reinforced with 2 metal L brackets, painted with 10min dry Kyrlon Fusion (It started raining, so had to be painted outside quick), 3 holes in the wall with plastic anchors, all said and done in about 20mins.


20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.
