    Aquarium Hood (canopy)

    I am planning to build my own canopy and I was hoping that someone can provide me on some ideas to get me started. I need to install my PC lights in it and also add some fans to cool things down.

    If you have any idea or pictures, please let me know.

    Hello again,

    http://www.rcarchive.com/fish/hood/

    I thought this design was a pretty cool idea, and very affordable to build yourself.

    If your looking for a more appealing design for the eye, this idea could put you on the right track.

    I really like the one that can be swung up and over for access. Neat and well planned out idea.
