48" Ray 2 LED | Mount for tank rim suggestions


Hi everyone,

I received my 48" Finnex Ray 2 today, and I am quite happy with the light it produces. Much more intense than my Current Freshwater LED+.

Here is a pic of my tank (a work in progress), with the light:



It really lights things it up down to the substrate. My only gripe, is the mounting bracket does not fit the rim of my 75g tank.

Picture of rim:


As a current work around I took one of my wife's wire hangers and slid them through the track rail that the initial mount would go though.





Though not ideal, it gives me a little peace of mind that the fixture won't fall in. The question I have for you guys, are there any mounts that you recommend for this type of tank that I can utilize this light with.

I am looking for a relatively easy mount solution before I have to consider building a canopy or a wall hung setup.

As always I appreciate any feedback.

Patrick

Seems I may have posted too soon.

Looks like the initial mounts it came with can come apart. This is better, but would love to know if anyone else has used a different mounting system.

Hello there. That is the way it is suppose to be, unless you're interested in a DIY hanging kit?

Hi Lowe, thanks for the feedback. When I initially posted, I had not realized that the brackets came apart. Once I did take them apart and removed the nylon screws and plate, I was able to properly place them on the rim.

I may eventually decide on a hanging kit. My first tank in forever so everything is new again. Definitely having a fun time with it. The Ray2 lights are awesome!
