I used a curtain rod from lowes. You dont see it with the canopy closed. I have two power brite bars for shimmer.

have someone make a metal frame that will sit on top of your frag tank (think 3D box)...


run your electrical down a square tube column on the back of the frame.

ask phi79. he showed me something interested, using a 1/4 inch electrical wire tubing and a bending bar. it's very east and works great. after you bend just mount it to your tank frame with U connectors.
