I love this thread! I definitely want to do this for the 30g long I've had sitting around on my desk for the past 4 months. I've been humming and hawing about what to do because I don't want to fork over a lot of money for expensive light fixtures, and I think these look kind of neat and industrial!

I was thinking of mounting a shelf on my wall with these brackets from IKEA:

I would then mount the hanging pendants from underneath the shelf. Do you guys think that would work?

Lighting is all very confusing to me, so how many fixtures would you recommend for my tank size? What kind of bulbs?
