Satta Sitter for Aquarium Light

Materials: Satta knob pulls and 5-minute epoxy

Description: I purchased a light with a gooseneck boom that was too short to get the light centered over the tank.

I had it sitting on the tank opening acrylic lip but that looked bad and incomplete. I allowed a lot of moisture to condense on the fixture, as well.

I needed it to sit about 2 1/2" off the glass.

After considering some metal strip style pulls, I saw and realized how perfect acrylic was when I found the Satta knobs at $1.99 each for 6.

I also realized, instead of somehow using the screws I would epoxy two together at the ends to create 4 mini columns or stand-offs.

My favorite part? The two Sattas glued together are exactly 2 1/2" high. Plus the lucite/plastic nobs capture the magic of the LEDs with a nice glow. Lots of fun!
