What did you end up doing with the light? Bending the legs, or hanging it.. or what?
I left it as-is but I'll be moving the tank onto a 4 tier shelf so I will hang the light or put the light on the upper shelf since the 17g will be on the higher shelf. The middle shelf is where my 20g CRS/CBS goes.
I will post some pictures when I get that set up. Hopefully soon.
