Possible to fasten lights under custom canopy without suspension?


I'm considering getting some of your LED's. I currently run T5HO (Hagen GLO's kits) mounted directly on the inside of a custom wood canopy for a 30"x30" square tank. I am running 4x24" Giesemann bulbs and would like to replace them with 2 of your 24" fixtures (tank is NOT CO2 injected). I see options for on tank and suspended but nothing for direct mounting. My tank is custom rimless Euro braced so the tank mounts won't work. What are my options if I decide to go your route?

Hi 2wheels. Thanks for the question. Check out this mounting option and let me know if this would work for your project.

I think that would work wonderfully. Thanks for the info. I'm going to follow this up on your forum as I have other questions.
