Metal halide lights both HQI and HID get extremely hot, and can give you a 3rd degree burn in no time if you were to touch it after it has been on a few minutes. You must be able to provide lots of ventilation in the form of auxiliary fans to help kept the tank from getting to warm. If metal halide lights are mounted in a canopy, you must also mount auxiliary fans. Metal halide bulbs require special handling when replacing the bulb, never touch a bulb with you bare hands, always use a clean cloth to handle the bulbs. Oils on your fingers can damage metal halide bulbs. Metal halide lights above an aquarium make a stunning display. With surface agitation, metal halide lights give the tank a shimmering light effect similar to the sun shining through a crystal clear lake. Normally one 150 or 175 watt light is good enough to cover a 24" x 24" (60 cm x 60 cm) footprint with a depth of 24" (60 cm) or less. If your tank is 30" to 36" (75 cm x 90 cm) tall, you may want to consider a 250 watt light.

A couple of years ago I was walking through a local flea market and ran across a vendor that sold wood furniture imported from Indonesia. I spotted a solid wood end stand/cabinet that measures 28" long X 28" wide X 24" high (71cm long X 71cm wide X 60cm high). I checked out the construction and determined that it would make a great aquarium stand. I bought it for $90 and thought about how much cheaper and better quality it was compared to aquarium stands sold in pet and aquarium stores. I had (a sponsor of Aquaworld Aquarium) build a custom 60 gallon (228L) (24" X 24" X 24" or 60cm X 60cm X 60cm) glass aquarium and lighting system.
