Unhappy Ideas on canopy's for tanks.

Hey all just wondering if anyone can enlighten me on ideas for a canopy on a tank. Im from South Africa and the pre- moulded ones here only go up to 4 foot by 1 foot and am looking to make a tank slightly wider than that. Thanks Only in Africa...

You're going to make the tank yourself? Hmm. If that's the case, I think your best bet would be to make a canopy to match. Are you talking about the plastic kind of canopy or the fancy wooden kind?

The plastic ones mostly. But some people buy really big fancy tanks that have specially made wooden decorative ones. Very expensive.

If you can find a sheet of plexiglass or plastic, you can cut it to fit your tank, cut out holes for your filter etc. and then get a fluorescent light strip to put over it. You may need to raise the light strip up so it's not resting directly on the plastic. As long as your tank isn't rimless, it should fit on there.
