Does the hood set directly on top of the tank, or does the conduit support off the tank somehow?

I pulled the other lights off and centered the 70W over 1/2 the tank since there is a center brace in my not-as-sexy-as-your-rimless-GLA tank. Hope the picture comes through OK.

I have 2 x 2217's on my 90. Barley enough flow, but I also have a reactor and an inline heater on each leg. Added a couple powerheads to mix things up. Great filters, though.

No flames, here Ed. I have the same setup going on my 29; I just have a much higher confidence level in my dual-stage regulator, engineered needle valve, etc., overkill or not.

A week after I put a few zebra loaches (botia striata) in my tank, all I could find was empty snail shells. They're small, get along with each other and others, and don't bother your plants. I'm sold.
