Thats actually awesome. Most folks suspend it with wire. Direct to the wall looks good. Though i wonder if your losing par, or is the light still directly over the tank?

Of course its less par. Any increase in height would do that

Its set to approx 24" above the substrate. Don't know the par value but this height seems to work for the low tech plants and non co2 setup I have.

If it works for you nothing else matters. Nice job.
