Mel,

I will be building a custom canopy in a few weeks. I haven't decided on what I am going to do for lighting yet, and need to incorporate that into the design. I'll keep you posted!!

I just revisited this post! I still have not built a canopy, but will be doing so soon. The tank has been set up for quite a while, and I have been breeding angels in it. Still no lighting (yet) and no plants.

Remeber the small rails that I used to hold the tank up....still holding strong. Remember, I am not an advocate for 2x4 construction in aquarium stands, and this one uses 1x2's to hold the 40 gallons up.

Nice shop. Great build. Thanks for spreading the truth about wood and quality construction.

Hello all....

I was just re-visiting this post and thought I'd drop a note. I still have the stand in this build, and it is still holding a 40 breeder up perfectly. Never had an issue with the 1" x 2" vertical tank supports. Never did build a canopy for it....

Thanks! Nice looking set up and the stand looks even better for some reason.
