    Hi,

    Am planning to hang my hamilton cayman sun fixture over my new tank . Problem is my stand has the plywood sticking out and hence cannot attach the stand to the sides. Neither can I hang the fixture from the ceiling (Big NO NO by wife to drill the ceiling).The tank is also 24 inches from the back wall where I can attach the conduit tube.

    Hence wondering where can I get a conduit tube for sale and bent to my specification.

    Regards,
    Abhishek

    My local ace hardware has bent conduit for me as long as they are simple bends. They also rent the bending tool

    I agree with Nubbs, the ace hardware in Woodbury will do that kind of stuff also. You could check the price online from Menards to see if the cost would be worth it, if you would ever need it again down the road.

    Thanks guys for the awesome replies...
    I will check at Homedepot , Menards and nearby Ace hardware if any in Eden Prairie .
    If not, I might have to knock at the doors of some of you who has a bender to help me out with it .

    Its a Hamilton cayman sun fixture, pretty light weight .. So I think 1/2 in conduit is more than enough .

    Regards,
    Abhishek

    If you want to swing over this evening, you're welcome to borrow the conduit bender. I've got two tanks with conduit hanging systems if you want some ideas.
