i do like that lamp but it would not fit on the tank stand... i had to resort to one of those hampton bay clip on lamps, which does not seem safe to me but it works and seems to look ok. i definatley think i should install a gfi outlet though.

I realize you already bought a clip on instead of this one, but for what it's worth, and for anyone else reading this thread who might be contemplating getting one of these desk lamps...

The base of the lamp comes right off. It's just attached by a screw. Then you could drill a small hole in your stand, find a screw that is the same diameter but longer, and insert it through the hole you just drilled. Tighten down, dispose of the base, and you're done.
