Or dump the base and attach the arm to the wall behind the tank. Gives you height and light adjustable hanger. Or just make one yourself. The stand is like $20 on sale at Petco atm. The dome light is $24 at Amazon - gets you double reflector and no need to spray paint the $8 home depo brooder lamps. Add the cost of gas ...

Or better yet: attach the base to the bottom of your top shelf, then insert the arm from the top and you are golden. You can then also paint the light stand / lamps any color you like. May I recommend red - that will look dashing

Love this project btw. My favorite part is setting up new tanks. We both have MTS, brother
