Getting a hydra in a few days but wont be getting the mount as it cost too much lol so im thinking of a way to mount the light on the tank. Hanging kit if last resort lol. I have an extra leftover long piece if aluminium that was used for my solar panels and im thinking of using this but i dont have a way to mount it on my tank. Theres no stand for me to screw it into so thats a no already. I was thinking like using something that screws to tighten on the rim of the tank(dont know whats it called) but i dont know how to make out that can be used with the pole i have. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Depending on where the tank is and how you want to mount the light I could make some suggestions..

If you decide to use that aluminum get an L bracket from homedepot and screw it to the wall.. many of colors shapes and sizes
