setting up the majestic lid?

Hi all,

I’ve recently bought a Monarch Majestic 30” metal hood, an Arcadia light controller & the Eheim Pro II 2026 for my aquarium.

I was wandering if anybody has set up the lighting in this hood plus the filter as I don’t know exactly how to put it together. Also can I use a 30” Freshwater lamp or does it need to be smaller?

If anybody has a picture of their setup with this lid that’ll be ideal.

Thanks.

It looks like a nice hood, but unfortunately, I'm unfamiliar with it. Regarding the bulb, typically a 30" lighting system will require a smaller bulb, so I doubt the 30" will fit into the lamp. You should be able to fit a 24" bulb or so in the hood.

Maybe if you could provide more detailed pics, like a pic underneath the hood, the hood on the aquarium with it open, etc.

Thanks, I'll see if I can up some pics later on tonight.

Should I remove the condensation tray, or will it be fine with the heat from the lamp !!!

It should be fine. The removal of that tray will only put your light at risk of being broken by the water condensing on it.
