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!
