I'm trading a co-worker my 12g Aquapod for his 75g tank, stand and 2 MH Ligths, that he currently has in storage.

I have a strange idea for a hood/light fixture that I'd like to get some feedback on.

My plan is to get a sheet of plywood and attach the lights to and then suspend the plywood to the ceiling using a pullie system to raise and lower the lights. I was thinking of using 4 eye hooks on each corner of the plywood with chains connecting to an S hook and then chains through the pullie and a hook on the wall to anchor the chain.

Anyone seen any DIY designs like this or experience with something like this?

Thanks

SB
