I was wondering if anyone has an idea on mounting 2 orphek compacts and 4 orphek or120. I don't want to pay for two hanging kits unless I really have to.

Will these be in a canopy or out in the open? If in a canopy, you can easily use shelf standards to hold them. If visible, aesthetically pleasing choices are fewer...

In a hood and I only have 18 inches of space as the tank is on a tall stand (44in) and the basement has 7 foot ceilings

i'd say, if you have a little creativity and are handy, should be 'short work' :).

I personally 3D designed my mounts and then printed them, not an exact solution for you, but just an idea or to help get the juices flowing:

Couldn't get them to 16 but I got to 14 and it works well. Hopefully it will work well. I'm very excited to see what happens with growth and color.
