I have a 40 gallon breeder tank from petco with the glass lid and a tidal 75 hob filter and a aquamax refugium. I’m planning on ordering 2 hydra 32 on Monday and looking for hanging option. Any ideas or pictures would be greatly appreciated

2 hydras would be great. 3 would be perfect, but unnecessary. I like to overkill on LEDs then run them at lower power, I find that it helps reduce shadowing.

Another solution for shadowing it tow throw a few t5s on there to supplement as well. This is also unnecessary since those two hydras will be plenty of power, but I'm just throwing the ideas out there.

For mine, I built a little canopy and hung my lights in there

Motion TV mounts. Easy to move over if need be for maintenance, and make adjustments to light placement.

•First pic has my Radions on the wall mount and using articulating mounts from https://aquariumledmounts.com/
•Second pic was from back when I had AI Hydra 26HDs with the TV wall mounts.

I planning on adding these at a later date too.
