Just thought I would upload some pics of a canopy i made for my brother in law's 36 gallon bowfront. Getting the angles in the front was a pain. It has since been stained.

Those are not easy to make. Looks awesome. I have a 55 bowfront with no canopy. Just a plexiglass piece thats not cut to fit to put the light over top. Looks terrible.

That's how my 26g bowfront is.

Thank you, It took forever finding the angles so that the 2 middle points would match up at the front where the curve is divided into 3rds, and for the 2 side boards to match up at the corners.

couldnt you have tried steaming a beam? to fit the angle of the tank itself? seems tricky but maybe a local company could do it on the cheap since its only one board.. just a thought.

Yeh, I thought about that, but the stand for it is the made the same style, 3 boards on the front. So I wanted it to look the same.
