| | Re: What do you use to seperate lighting fixture from water?
On one tank I use 2 pieces of roughly cut rusty pipe. Wedged on the beautiful plastic rim of my aquarium. The pipes raise the fixture about 1/2" above the rim. The bulbs are about 1-1/2" from the surface of the water.
Another tank has a goosneck contraption. That way I can move the light up so it blinds me if I want to. The fixture hangs about 2" from the surface of the water.
Another one has the fixture sitting on the center brace and extending to the gorgeous plastic rim on both sides. 1" to the surface of the water.
Done away with any glass tops a long time ago. Get dirty and look ugly anyway. All my light fixtures do not need to be moved to change water, feed fish, or dump boxes of fertilizers in them. "Ask Lazy to teach you wisdom." as we say in the motherland.
