Acrylic brackets

Howdy Guys,

I am contemplating/brainstorming a design for an acrylic bracket that would serve as a light mount for a buildmyled light fixture. I have an ADA 90-H and the buildmyled is likely the light source that I will buy and use.

Hanging the fixture from the ceiling or wall is not an option (I wished that I could), because I am leasing the house that I am in.

I prefer to not just have the fixture sitting directly on the tank as I think that it takes away from the beauty of the lilly pipe glass works as well as the aesthetics of the tank itself.

Anyway, I was toying with the idea of having an acrylic brace midway on the tank and having the light fixture mounted under slung. I would drag my router out and cut a right angle groove into the acrylic so that it would rest flush with the tank glass edges.

Does anybody know of a company or individual that could make me this acrylic piece?

Thanks Much!
