Built a riser and raised the light about 3" off the rim. It makes a world of difference!

I bumped up the intensity from 56% to 70% to compensate.

It really is a game changer for that light! I hated the reflector angle.The fish were always in the shadow when they were in the top front of the tank.

Sorry no parts list, its a one-off 3d printed thing.

I do believe someone on here sells acrylic risers for lights.

dang. Back to the drawing board I guess.

I did contact a company that advertised they would be willing to make them from the "Fosters and Smith Ecoxotic Blowout Sale" thread, but their price was way above my range. :frown2:

did you look for the guy on here in the for sale section?

It looks like there are a couple of people doing that in the FS section. I opened my search from "Ecoxotic Risers" to simply "risers"

thanks! I'll be sure to give them a shout
