For a while I've been thinking of a way to raise my lights a bit. I have two of the 36inch odysseas over a 45G. My best idea so far was to use a shelf mounting set-up and rest the lights on some 16 inch shelf brackets.

I'm embarrassed to admit that it never occurred to me to just bend the brackets, I'm glad I haven't bought that shelf stuff yet.
