DIY Light Suspension

I used posts that are actually expandable closet rod hangers and U-ringed into bookcase sides.

Anyone have "clean" mod suggestions for doing the same thing with an Aqueon 24" 2X T5 light fixture since it doesn't have mounting bracket (just tiny holes for wires to attach to side of tank. I would like to do a glass canopy and be able to move light around to see what I'm cleaning/adjusting in tank, not just have it fixed overhead but movable.

Preferably nothing that involves drilling into walls/ceilings.

Thanks for the suggestions, but pictures speak volumes.

Smile Anyone

...have suggestions. Has anyone modded a swing arm with a 24" fluorescent and developed a novel way to clamp it in a stable manner above tank. I would like to move light to tank side/front to see what I'm cleaning.
