Sorry that was used for an quick setup display. It was our HALO arms mounted to the aquarium. After testing it, we did not want to recommend, as the pressure on the back of the glass it more risk than we want to take on the tank.

We went with the universal hangers that mount to the stand and now the wall mount floating suspension system.

I know a few people have used the 80/20 material to make some nice low profile mounts. Personally not keen on mounts on the sides of the tank. I like the ones that come up from the back and over the aquarium. Have you seen @siggy his build for the fixture?

Thanks Siggy, I just quickly checked thought your post and saw you modified the kessil ones i was going to try that but i really like your 80/20 now. Those aluminum clamps you have on the bank of the stand are those from the store as well or did you make those?

those are linear bearings and are in the motion section of the catalog, You also have to by a break kit and drill the bearing to insert it. OR just buy a angle bracket off their site, But I will say it slides super silky :cool:

Hey @siggy I was just wondering how high is the 80/20 from the top of your aquarium glass?

1566567819584.png
In that pic it was too high and I had cut it down so the bottom of my AL fixture will adjust from 16" down to 8" to the glass,
and the water should be 2" lower?...FYI I ordered 6 footers and 2 footers off the site, It was cheaper than paying shipping for longer pieces and cutting.

Sorry missed this post. Yes @Kyl is correct the 19.4" brackets will allow the Mitras to fit in the middle, flush with the fixture. Also, in the interest of keeping the fixtures standard worldwide we are looking at a new bracket to secure the Mitras to the 18" width fixtures. This is a new bracket we are tooling now. Small changes will be made to not cover the display and the buttons on the sides. So the "ear" will be narrower.

When will these brackets be available?
