TonyK Really nice looking tank. Thanks for posting pictures of the feet for the hood. I am about to pick up a 40B and wanted to light it without spending a ton of money.

pandamonium Yeah just make sure you pad the bottom with something. The metal on glass sound isn't pleasant. Neither are the scratches!

Only One Haze Awesome! Thank you. Seeing it from that angle helps a bunch. Might try this myself tonight with an old metal coat hanger.

pandamonium No problem Thanks for the compliments. I attached some pictures of how I made the raised legs. I basically took some metal wire and I bent it to make a base. Kinda like this shape
----Light Hood

I wasn't able to get a good picture of this because I have it covered in styrofoam so it will not scratch the glass. The other two images show how I bent the top part of the metal to create a "nook" in which the screw sits. I drilled holes in the side and put a washer under a screw as a way to fasten the legs to the hood. Tightening the screw pushes the top "nook" and secures it to the screw. I did that on both sides. If you have questions, post them here or feel free to PM me and I can try to get better pictures of it Also the light sits on my glass and my glass is on the lip of the tank

Only One Haze Great looking tank! I did the same thing with my light by converting it to screw in CFLs. I love your idea about the standoffs though. Do you have any more pics of those and how you attached them. How do you have it sitting on the tank? Is it just on top of the glass top or does it sit on the lip of the rim of the tank? Sorry for all the questions...Great setup!

Yeah I never did either but I got them through a local guy who ordered them. They are like bronze cories but more red? They are doing really well in my tank so far.

pandamonium NEW UPDATE WITH FISH! N. rubrocaudatus and F1 GBRs

pandamonium Honeycombs are doing great! I'm training them to feed at around 6 or 7 pm so that I know they will get food Mostly they hide out. I guess they are wed fed since they don't come out of their holes much. Today was feeding day for them again. Maybe they are out later than I think but haven't seen much. Usually when its pitch black at night I can hear them hitting things haha
