Remove the light stand from the aquarium stand and remove the light fixture from it.
A standard pin, 1-1/2" wide bulb. The main caution to the use of these bulbs for aquariums, is the use of shop lights as an inexpensive alternative to many aquarium lights. A 4100 K cool white shop light is not going to come close to a 6400 K daylight lamp that is of peak PAR efficiency (even if you match lumens). This bulb will generally use more watts and have a lower lumens per watt ratio (usually around 40) and is common in shop lights and even some aquarium bulbs. These are generally the least expensive lamps to purchase and even though they may be "old school", some still try to make up for the low technology with the fact you can purchase several for a low price to make up for poor efficiency.
A standard pin, 1" wide bulb. As compared to the T-12, a 48" T-12 will use 40 watts, while a 48" T-8 will often use 32 watts (although not always), making the T-8 a more efficient lamp than the T-12. The T-8 is the more common bulb/lamp size in many basic aquarium lights.

When it comes to my planted aquariums, I prefer the look of pendant lighting to canopy lighting. They provide extra flexibility for adjusting their height above the tank. One of the challenges of pendant lighting is how best to hang them. An inexpensive, yet effective and somewhat elegant way to hang a pendant is from a light stand made of electrical conduit. Electrical conduit is super cheap, easy to work with, can be painted and is quite sturdy. Note: If the aquarium is less than 30" wide, you may want to consider an . I acquired a large, odd shaped, glass jar that I thought would make a cool aquarium. Due to the strange shape, a traditional aquarium hood/light combo would not work on this aquarium. I decided that a cheap aluminum 8.5″ clamp light would work well but I needed a way to hang it over the tank so I designed and build this simple wooden stand. This project solves a very specific problem and may not be applicable to you but perhaps it will inspire new ideas.For this particular project, I am building a light stand for a 178 gallon Oceanic aquarium. The tank is about 60” wide and measures about 60” tall on its stand. I build my conduit light stands in three pieces: two pieces that attach to the sides of the aquarium stand and a top piece that has bent corners. The top piece will be attached to the side pieces using conduit couplers. I like to position the couplers at the lip along the top of the tank so they do not draw too much attention. They can be seen clearly in the final pictures below.Aqua Design Amano (ADA) has been on the forefront of clean design in aquaria for quite a while and they developed an ideal solution to this lighting dilemma. It connects to the back of the stand and suspends the light over your tank, relieving you of the hassle of drilling holes in your house.
