pictures of lights hung over 6'+ rimless tanks pls

I am in the beginning process of planning a 6 or 8 foot long tank. I already have a 6' t-5 fixture for the tank. I would like to see how people have hung their lights....and if someone has set up a motorized hanging fixture that is not enclosed in a canopy, I would like to see that too.

It's not a rimless tank, but the motorized lift for my lights works really well and it is very clean looking from a display standpoint.

Linear actuator installed in attic

Pulleys carrying the low stretch lines

do you have a build thread that provides more info on your light lift setup? I love the idea and want to do this when I move.
