I like that idea! Here are some before lights on this AM. Just got my @Oceanbox Designs frag rack so the few frags I have are up on that for the time being. Excited to start arranging my zoa garden just waiting on an order from reef lounge to be shipped probably next week.

Pretty tank, though I feel like the gooseneck Mount, mounted on the back would look better.

@Fryguy0201 Thank you! Can not wait for it to be stocked and start the grow out. @William Ya I have considered that, I wanted the bracket I have now to work so badly haha but the tank is too narrow for it to be mounted on the back without the tank being on the edge of the cabinet. I might try out the gooseneck though, cause I would be interested to see how it changes the aesthetic.

Right now the excess metal on the mount draws the eye to the light fixture as opposed to the tank. I think a gooseneck mounted on the back middle, or back left would look the best

I would cut the upper bracket to size. Ban saw, hack saw, Dremel cut off tool. OR, get some conduit, bend and paint black, mount to back of cabinet and mount/hang light from it.

I went ahead and ordered a 12 inch gooseneck. Figured I would try that out. Side note: I am currently running the stock filter sponge cut at about 2/3 in the first rear chamber and chemi pure blue in the second. Is this alone a sufficient amount of filtration? I am tempted to purchase a mushroom box from @Oceanbox Designs and make it a small in tank refugium with some chaeto or something. I am doing weekly 10% water changes and want to make sure I keep everything as stable and filtered as possible.

It may look better rid you incorporate macroalgae in your scape. (Dragons breath can be very pretty as part of a scape)

Can anyone identify what this might be on my utter chaos frag? Want to make sure it’s nothing detrimental.
