Hi All

I am starting up a new 300 liter system and today is the first day of cycling. I will cycle the system for 6 weeks. Still adding a skimmer, media reactor, uv-sterilizer and wave makers.
SG is 1.026 at them moment. Will also setup my dozer once the livestock starts going in.

I have a Radion XR30W G3 and want to position the light 200mm above my water level. I have a stand for it, but this is way to high and what I used on my Nano. So its up for sale if anyone is interested? Or to swop for a rail?

What would be the best bracket or rail to achieve this height?

I can DIY a bracket but I thought to ask the question first and hear what you have to say.

The cabinet is being manufactured and the system will also have a 150mm canopy on top. The cabinet material will be a MDF wrap board with stainless steel hinges done in Cadbury Oak (attached pic)

Here are some pics.

Yes I changed the canopy from 150mm to 200mm. To be sure. So the canopy position will sit 50mm below the glass edge and go up another 150mm where the light will be.

Any suggestions on a bracket for the light? I dont want to do cables from the roof, but if that would work best it will be an option.

Thanks guys
