Hi
Everyone, so I have a rimless tank and decided to get a net for it. Now with the new cover net, i can't mount my kessil anymore. Any idea to go around it instead of ceiling mount?
I am thinking to somehow mounted to the back of the wall but not sure how.
Any idea is highly appreciated.
Thank You.

Can you post a picture of the net and how you're using it? You can build your own tank top and have it go around the light mount. They sell kits to make them, or you can make one out of a window screen kit (I've used that several times).

You can also mount the light to the wall using an arm and hang it off that, over your tank. I've seen people use plant hangers for this.

Looks to be the same size as a window screen frame. Verify that it is and you could run to Lowe's and get a pack of four window screen frame corners and just cut out the section have it go around the mount.
Again, assuming that it works like a window screen frame. What brand screen top is that?

Or, just leave it as it is. It's not really that high up off the tank.
 

What percentage of blue versus white lighting do you think makes the best coral growth combo?
