I had the same issue. I did the layout outside of the tank first. I used a combination of plastic threaded rod and epoxy. I used epoxy to bond smaller pieces into large, then carefully drilled out for the threaded rod. Onc I mocked it up I dissassembledand reassembled in tank. I only have 2í above my tank so it was either that or have a small kid doing it in the tank... lol

I think you'll have to drain the tank a bit, wear a snorkel and get your upper half wet. Do your lights raise up at all? I have a similar problem in my tank and have sort of given up on doing anything to the lower back of my tank... just can't reach it! :0)
