Clearance sale! Currently only white color is left. BOT Mount V2 Coming Summer 2021

The long awaited BOT mounts are finally in! We worked with a local RI company to design and build our very own back of tank mounting arm. These are made out of 1″ thick, precision CAD cut UV resistant HDPE (High Density Polyethylene), AKA starboard. This is the same material that is used on the decks of commercial fishing vessels- so it’s tough stuff! The material is virgin plastic made in PA, cut and finished in Bristol, RI.

Unlike the competition (RMS and HMS mounts) it does not rely on your tank’s trim directly for support. Our mounting arms distribute the weight of your light evenly, and there are no screws or clamps, or any metal parts in contact with the water. Our tank mounts include a 6″ offset for 12-18″ wide tanks, and a 12″ Offset for 18-24″ wide tanks. The bottom of your light will be 10″ above the tank rim at a perfect 90 degree angle.

Every Tank mounting arm set includes:

  • 6″ and 12″ On Center offset spans
  • Supports for 1/4″, 3/8″, and 1/2″ glass thickness (3/4″, 1″, and beyond available upon request)
  • 1/8″ and 1/4″ shims for rimless tanks with 3M adhesive
  • 4 stainless steel screws (none of which make contact with your tank water)
  • All the hardware you need to attach these to a Photon V2/V2+

Our tank mounting arms work with our lights in either the parallel or perpendicular orientation, so you can utilize these to mount your light to the back of your aquarium, or use one on either side for a longer span.

One BOT mount will work with a Photon 16/24, and 2 are required for a Photon 32/48/50.

    These mounts are amazing. Beyond what I was expecting. Super heavy duty and the pieces fit together perfectly 10/10

    These mounts are extremely nice! I love how they have spaces in the mount are to run wires through to help hide them. Very strong and can hold both reefbreeder and aquatic life t5 combination. Well worth the price.

    Very well built. Reach out regarding other options on extensions and they got back to me right away with solutions. I’ve trusted Reefbreeders with my lighting, dosing and ato. Never failed me yet and GREAT customer service

    BOT mounting arm was the solution I needed to mount my V2+ due to high ceiling where the tank is located. Using the ceiling mount option was not an option I could take advantage of. The mount and light combined looks nice and the BOT mount provide cable management for the power cable. Mount is very well constructed and more than capable of handling the weight of the light.

    Great fit, Great look.

    It’s a very sturdy mount but it only includes two arm extension sizes and my tank required a size in between the two.

    Easy to install and really cleaned up the look of the tank. Also maintenance is easier with no brackets in the way!
