    custom canopy/ hanging powerheads

    Hi!
    I'm in the process of building a canopy to house some MH and T5's.
    The canopy sits on the outter perimiter of the tanks.
    Works Great..
    The only oversight i've had... was that the powerheads hang on the side of the tank.
    Now with the new lid... the powerheads don't have the ledge to hang on.
    Any suggestions?
    I'm thinking of making a custom braket to mount the MJ's in the tank.
    Possibility magnets on the MJ and on the outside?

    theres like a million options.

    u can do the magnet holder mods, do a quick search online and u should find tons.

    u could take the oppourtunity to attach a rotation device as a wavemaker, just mount it directly on the hood, in a corner or something.

    u can make ur own bracket out of acrylic i'm sure

    theres a few sites u can order the magnets from... i can't rememebr them off hand

    but if u want to make a crude one, then cleaning magnets would be fine.
