The canopy will be along the same lines as the stand, it should be done in a day or two, the fish were cut from wood. I can't wait till June 7, the day the tank arrives and get this put all together.:beer:

I designed it myself, and had it built by a custom cabinet maker.

I like my canopy design, hard to tell from the pic, but the 3 panels in the front pop off for feeding and such, and the top is in 3 sections so you can open any one section after turning off that light and not go blind.

Totally worth the money.

casey,

they have different fish, and different sizes for different prices. The ones I got just happened to be the really expensive ones. The ones on my canopy are smaller and cheaper.
