View Full Version : 1 Conduit to hold LED panel?

Upgraded my lighting (two Aquamana LED fixtures. Really wanted Hydras but couldn't justify $1k in lighting just yet). These things are heavy... 8lbs a piece. Can't ceiling mount. Might be able to wall mount but not sure having 8lbs swinging 15" away from the wall.

My goal was to bend a piece of conduit and bracket it to the back of the tank. However I am wondering if doing one conduit upside down J 'hook' per light is going to be strong enough. Anyone have any idea what the weight is these things can hold? Any other feedback I should consider? I've been reading a handful of the DIY reef mounts on here but not totally sold on any one option so far. :uhoh3:

Thanks!

conduit would hold 8# without a problem I had 2 pieces of 1" holding my 35# 6' canopy
