Been wiring up LED power supplies and trying to figure out how to make a custom sliding track mount for the 100W LED pendant lights this weekend. Think I have it figured out now. Going to use window curtain tracks. Tried track lighting tracks but they were too flimsy

I really wanted to mount the 100W LED's to a track mount so that I could easily fine tune their layout. Finally figured out to use window curtain track. Tracked down a local supplier and went picked up a couple of 12' sections of their heavy duty track.
Then I used a 5/16 bolt with washer to slide into the track and mount the light bracket to. This puts the lights 18" above the water which is the minimum distance recommended by Ecoxotic.
There will be 3 of these lights plus 2 rows of magenta stunner strippers and 4 of the Ecoxotic 6,500k Panorma modules. I think I will add one more curtain track a few inches closer to the front of the tank too, to give me another mounting option to play with.
Neat Idea! Is that a stick holding the access door open? be careful not to break a finger... maybe install a couple hydrolics or spring mech to keep the door open free standing. Great setup and thats one sick raptor you have too!
Got the stunner strip lighting brackets finished. These need to be near the water and easily moved out of the way while doing tank maintenance so I needed some kind of hinged frame to mount them too.
These will be placed over opposite sides of the tank and the stunner strips extend out towards the center of the tank.
The stunner strip mounts are on hinges and will be able to be tilted and aimed towards the back of the tank and then locked in place. Still trying to figure out how to make them adjustable and stay at the angle you want.
The whole assembly is hinged at the back and will be mounted to the wall behind the tank and just above the water.
