most big name LED kids you can buy hanging kits for them, others fabricate a hanging bracket with aluminium or wood

I tried something similar with a clothing rack, I found I couldn't get the right height for my tank plus I had some things on the side of the cabinet preventing me from doing it.

I have mine in front of a curtain so I used the curtain rail to hold it up :lol: and before you ask, it is a really stable curtain rail.

If I had the money I'd make up a metal rack that attached to the back of the cabinet, with an adjustable height vertical piece at the back and then it came forwards and split off into a T to mount lights.

im going to assemble the rack in a way where 2 poles bolt on to the back of the stand and if u imagine the rack upside down with out the bar on the bottom u can sort of picture how it would bolt up and where the legs would normally be ill extend them so I can hang the light from the legs so it over hangs the tank if I bolt the 2 poles far enough up the aquarium stand it should work in "theory"
