      Well I decided it’s time to add another project to my already long list of projects that are waiting to be finished... and that project is to somehow hang lights above my 75 gallon. I know there are wall brackets you could attach to the wall and have it hang from the side over your tank but I’m not going to mess with the walls. What I’m thinking is that I might have to get a stand of some kind that sits behind the tank or maybe one stand on both sides that each hold one side of the lights I’m going to hang. Has anyone heard of something like that? I’m figuring I may just have to diy one...

      Yes there are ready made ones you can find online. Search for aquarium light hanging kits. I built my own out of aluminium square bars and L brackets.

      Thanks, I wasn’t sure how to even go about wording it. I may have been over thinking it to be honest:

      I don’t have much time right now but once I do I’ll write a true reply regarding your lights and show y’all what I’m thinking. I did a little sketch using an app I found.

      If you are good with DIY you can use the ADA hanging light stand as a reference...

      They are honestly quite a simple design that could probably be knocked up quite easily if you just tweak the design a little...

      Check out some grow lights used for cultivation, perfect for pond environments. Indoor par38 or floodlight style outdoor i got all mine on amazon super cheap.
