quick question, how much weight can a tank take? Wont the extra weight of this hood only increase the strain on the glass?

Nice, Posting for future reference...
The weight is exerted on the edge of the glass not bowing in the middle, minimal risk at the most.

the canopy is not very heavy at this point. not near as much as my 125 canopies.

this one is going on an acrylic tank too.

That's why I bought a compound miter saw. Now I can make the wrong cut so much quicker :lol:

That's a great looking canopy you've built there. Be sure to post pics with it installed.

Verry well done and a beutiful finnished product, I would personaly take some of the same molding you used on the canopy and make some fake doors for the stand to mach the canopy just a personal prefrance but you still did an outstanding job either way
