    psycho,

    Nice looking setup, may I ask why your light bracing is so much higher than the lighting itself?

    My new setup will be similar, just with a pulley system to lower or increase the height of the lights.

    But that is basically it. It is easier to adjust the height of the lamps. Especially when acclimatising new stock. Also when working on the tank you just clip the lights higher.
