Building a Hood to Mount my Coralife Mini onto my 2.5g
Just ruminating on how to build a hood for my 2.5g. I have an all-glass tank and managed to get my paws on a cheap Coralife Mini (2x9w).
I know a lot of people prefer to jerry-rig legs onto them, but I have a betta and keep to keep him inside the tank. I have seen the Perfecto acrylic lids that some people sit the light on top of, but I am worried about overheating the tank.
Has anyone devised a way to make a hood for such a setup? My initial plans involve copying the hood-part of my other tanks so that the light fixture can sit on top and I can have a little door for feeding Lou Reed his favorite snacks.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated and I will be sure to take lots of pictures if I figure something out so that anyone else with a similar problem can figure it out from my examples.
