Question Need help mounting LED fixture!

Good afternoon everyone!

I was wondering if anyone knew where to get mounting kits/supplies to mount a DIY LED fixture? Hanging the fixture from the ceiling is not an option so I'm hoping to either mount it right on my versa glass top or use a sort of goose neck like the kesil.

My tank's specs: 20G long 30"/12.5"/12.7". The fixture is going to be 24" long by 1.6" wide.

The idea is something like this:

Where I can hang the fixture from a mounting rig attached to the tank.

Or like this:

where the light is suspended by a goose neck that is attached to the tank.

Any advice or suggestions are appreciated!

Edit** I forgot to mention that it is also important that however it's mounted, I need to keep access to the tank in case i need to clean/change the scape etcs.
