Anyone want to build me a stand/canopy?

Post by Scott » Thu Sep 22, 2005 8:00 pm

I need a stand and canopy for my tank. I am currently looking for a design or plans but I am wood retarded. I can stain it though so all I would need is a someone to build a frame, skin it and either build some doors or help me find a good source for quality doors. This is probably going to be my main tank now (before it was going to be my second or third tank if you count the one I am setting up for my son) so it does need to look good.

I would appreciate any input and if anyone knows anyone else that would be willing to do it please PM me their e-mail or phone number,
Scott

BTW, I don't expect it for free. I know that materials and labor are not cheap but it will have to be reasonable.

That's a nice looking design.

Yeah, the 60 gallon tank size doesn't leave much room for a decent sump and equipment so I thought that the cabinent would be a good place for it all.

You see that left corner ? Since that is at tank level can you say gravity fed refugium ?? The front could face the left side, I always wanted a gravity fed refugium.

It remind's me of Susan Wilson/Flame*Angel's setup from reef central. I have always liked that setup, and she does have a refugium in the upper left corner of hers.
