hanging a light
I wasn't sure where to post this, but I have been having trouble figuring out how to hang my light.
I am about to order a 2x2 custom tank and stand. I do not want to use a light bar that requires drilling into the stand, but obviously will if I have to, but am going for 4 side viewability. I will be using a 4 bulb t5 fixture so will need to be able to adjust up to 36" or so from the substrate to vary from hgih to low light.
Is hanging from the ceiling my only option? It seems like this would be hard to get it anging right. What do I need to consider if going this route?
Is there some means to hang the light from a free standing fixture?
Thanks for your help.
