I resumed working on my Stand and Hood for my DIY 200g tank I built a while back. I just need to put the doors on the stand, cut the last top for the hood and figure out how im going to paint or stain everything.
The doors will look just like the rest of the stand. I hope to get them put up tomorrow.
I was thinking about running the siding all the way up but im not sure how I would attach it. I dont think screws in the side of my tank would be a good idea, and i would rather not glue it in case my taste change down the road.
Another option besides glue or tape would be to attach the sideing to a piece of plywood the size of your tank sides. Drill the top and bottom of these to accept some dowels and drill corresponding holes in the bottom of your hood and the top of your stand. Then it's just a simple matter of placing the side pieces into the stand and lowering the hood over it to hold it in place.
