Canopy is on.



door is going to be black and will be coming on monday
the opening is like this because if i ever want to add metal halides that need to be raised of the water surface, i can take the door off and create another box that sits on top of the canopy and holds the MH lights



to avoid lifting the whole heavy canopy everytime i need to do something in the tank.... only the front half comes off. back half and door will stay on the tank.



this is how the 2 halves are joined

Did you have the tank custom made, or did you buy it from somewhere?

The cabinet and the tank both look great!

tank is custom made but a standard 180 gallon size

but its a peninsula style tank with the overflow centered on the right wall.... this way i am not restricted to its use...... im probably gonna be moving out of my parents house within a year or 2 so when i move into my own house i am not limited to the positioning...
.... also both long sides can be used as the front, so if i ever scratch one side, i can turn it around and have another good face
