Hey everyone I made a diy mount for my 2 hydra 26 lights and it only costed about $25 to maleness both mounts which is a lot cheaper than the store bought ones feel free to ask any questions on how I did it! I still need to paint them and drill holes to hide the wires.

Thank you! Just got my hydra in today. Didn’t want to use the ceiling mount it came with. This is perfect.

Very nice did it end up being that much cheaper then buying the brackets? Looks like something I could do

This is interesting. I am looking for a way to mount my T5 hybrid to a stand and was thinking of using conduit. Do you have a pic of how the arms are mounted? Also did you buy them curved like that or is that something you did to get them to curve over the tank?
 

How do you keep your aquarium temperatures down during the hot months?
