To be honest- I'm working on that now. Just in case. I've got enough battery operated airators to Run on the tanks- but I want something better. May have to put a generator up to run things.

Jodi.., would this mean staying at your shop during the storm just to keep the generator,etc going or is it just a case of start everything up ,cross your fingers and run for the hills? ... I'm worried just leaving and going on vacation,... This must be really a tough dilemma for you,...wish we could help!!!

Believe me,... It looks a lot better the more you drink or the farther away you get ,., say new York or Florida ....lol....but seriously,.. it somehow refrazzles the lighting alittle and the overall effect is a much neater, cooler look.... Now I gotta reprint the stand to match the top.

Unfortunately it would mean me at home with my tank and the animals and kids, and my husband at the shop. Or vise versa. But I can't be in two places at once. Thankfully- my house is two blocks from a hospital so it's the first place to get power back.

Remarkably, no blood was shed in the making of this contraption
The pictures suck but itll give ya an idea anyways.., it looks better in person and even better after a beer!
After seeing your canopy, mines looks like a huge shoe box tossed on my tank... It looked great and makes the tank look really nice!
