Bought a new toy from bulkreefsupply.com. A RO/DI system. I was sold on their advertising videos.
Added these standard shelving brackets from homedepot. At its highest point, the light is 16 inches away from the substarte. This set up should give me greater control of the light intensity. I plan to paint these the same color as my wall to blend in a little better. I'm liking the setup so far.
Working on the sump plumbing soon.
