I am looking for a way to mount 3 xr30 lights over a 240 gallon tank. The tank is euro braced. Ideally I would hang them from the ceiling but I have a drop ceiling. The only other option I believe is the multi light rms track. If I use that system the feet will just sit on the tank. I don’t think the rms arms will mount to the euro braces tank. The rail would also stop me from using a hood which I really would like to use to prevent light flooding my family room. Mounting to a wal won’t work as the area behind the tank is open and will serve as a kinda sorta fish room. Any ideas how to make this work with a drop ceiling?

Thanks. I may try making a bracket from some pipe. I think I may be able to mount the pipe to the sides of the stand and still have room to slide a canopy on and off.

Putting the lights on a track and then hanging the track (as mentioned above) by putting in a couple lines THROUGH the ceiling tiles to solid anchor spots should work fine and look great. It's just a couple very small drill holes in the ceiling tiles. It would actually look pretty slick

The RMS feet just sitting on the tank edge has worked fine for me
Have 4 xr30's on my 160gal(redsea 650) & had no worries like i thought i was going to have of tipping it over.
Been mounted that way for 4 years & no problems

I almost forgot one other option. It's what I did years ago with my MH and T5 lights, I hung them from inside a canopy. If you want a canopy, just string them to the top of it.
