 Do  you  get  any  holders  that  can  fit  each  pin  "  [  "  separately  ?
 
 Thanks

 @Linelogic
 Thanks  Prabhu.
 
 @superbsite
 Hi  Pio,
 
 Thanks  for  your  comment.
 I  think  you  are  telling  about  fluorescent  light.
 Yes.  You  can  use  it.
 I  am  using  4  feet  T5  light  in  the  similar  PVC.
 You  can  use  the  same  2  piece  holder  for  this.
 
 Regards
 Sujo

 That  was  really  nice,  just  1  small  piece  of  advice....  instead  of  tin  foil,  use  ready  aluminium  reflectors,  u  get  loose  1z  everywhere...  and  are  easy  to  shape  them....

 it  is  indeed  out  of  box  idea,  hats  off  to  you  buddy..  really  inspiring  too.
 
 To  prevent  the  screw  to  be  seen  from  outside,  may  be  we  can  use  some  adhesive(  feviquick)  or  something  to  stick  those  clamps.  I  am  too  planning  to  get  myself  these.  However  i  am  planning  to  add  all  these  together  so  that  i  can  remove  and  place  the  complete  hood  as  a  single  piece.

 Thanks  to  Gokul,  Veeral,  Shreyas,  Vinay,  ajha,  Romi,  Nick  and  matnoh  for  your  comments
 
 @nanomania
 Reflectors  are  better.
 I  got  the  perfect  reflector  for  my  4  feeter  tank  so  I  used  reflectors  there.
 But  for  2  feet  tank,  I  didn't  get  the  correct  size  reflector  so  I  used  aluminum  foil.
 
 @ajha,
 Feviquick  will  not  be  as  strong  as  a  nut  and  bolt.
 Please  take  enough  care  if  you  are  using  fewiquick  otherwise  the  entire  light  may  fall  into  the  tank.

 Hi  Sujo,
 
 Nice  idea..  Would  want  to  try  for  CFL.   Smile  
 
 Wouldn't  it  be  better  to  use  wire  straps  instead  of  nuts  &  bolts?
 It  would  hold  better  &  adds  asthetic  value.   Very Happy  
 
 Regards,
 ABHILASH

 excellent  bro..  
 feel  like  would  be  even  better  if  you  can  paint  top  half  of  the  pvc  stand  and  the  inner  areas  at  the  ends.  also  if  u  could  cut  short  the  protruding  bolt  leaving  just  enough  to  hold  the  lamp  inside.
 Anyway  its  awesome,  i'll  try.
