 Neat  job!  Thumb Up  
 
 I  think  you  should  have  PLLs  the  other  way  around  with  fixtures  at  the  center.  Else  the  right  and  left  ends  of  tank  will  get  deprived  of  lights.
 
 Whats  the  tank  size?

 @  Abhishek,
 
 Yes.  Its  my  sisters  tank.
 
 I  have  used  5mm  black  Acrylic  sheet  to  make  the  hood.  For  the  side  stand  used  4mm  Clear  Acrylic  sheet.  Also  glued  using  Quick  Fix.  Didnt  get  hold  of  CHCL3  to  glue  the  acrylic  sheet   Thumb Down  .!!!!
 
 Used  Philips  reflector  inside.  Modified  the  reflector  to  fit  inside  the  hood.  Used  two  reflector.
 
 @  Hamza,
 
 Thanks...  Smile  
 
 Lesson  learned..  Next  time  I  will  do  it  the  other  way  round  like  what  you  have  mentioned..  I  have  seen  in  all  fixtures  with  the  holder  on  the  left  and  right  hand  side.  Hence  did  it  that  way.
 
 @  Arjun,
 
 Thanks  for  the  comments   Smile

 nice  and  beautiful  design.  can  u  post  the  full  pic  of  the  tank  along  with  the  hood.  how  is  the  hood  supported  on  the  tank?the  supports  are  very  narrow  it  doesn't  look  very  stable,  a  clip  or  something  similar  should  be  provided  to  hold  the  base  at  it  place.
