I have a monster 72" 12 bulb Aquatic Life fixture. I was going to put it on my next tank but had a thought. I was wanting to get a canopy with this next tank purchase (never had a one before) but for the life of me I can not figure out how to hang or use T5s with a canopy. Does anybody have experience with this or can it even be done?

Well, they make a lot of heat so be sure to vent your canopy. As far as mounting, you can either use the mounting holes in the light or add a ledger on both ends of the canopy inside so the light will sit on them.

The canopy is a roll top, so the entire top goes up. My light fixture is hanging above my 150g now. I am guessing that I will just have to forget the canopy.

Ledger is how you do a roll top canopy
