the light sits on a full wood cover, that's resting on the top series of bolts. I haven't cut the hole for the light yet, as I don't have any tools to make that an easy job. I plan on cutting a hole, and then making some sort of posts/guides so the light can't move around too much.... Make sense?

I'm not planning on filling the tank for a while yet...I'm still reading and getting to know what all I want to put in it.

Thanks for the feedback. Cheers.
