Upgraded my tank setup


Recommended Posts

Got tired of my lights just hanging there, in the open, so I finally decided to build a floating canopy. Still need to trim and finish it and trim and re-finish the stand but I am pretty happy so far. I added before during and after photos.

Nice Job.  I really appreciate the before, during, and after photos.

Question.. do you float this because the weight is bad on the top of the tank?  I'm thinking of building one, but was going to rest mine on tank top.

On mine I floated it because I have a shallow lagoon tank so a canopy on top would look kind of funny. Other reasons are with a shallow lagoon it allows me to still enjoy a top down view. It also allows me to easily access the tank, it provides for better air circulation, without installing fans, and lastly I just preferred the look of a floating canopy over a set on top canopy. I just felt it looks a little more modern and open.
