I used a 1x10 cut them to make a box that sit over the tank then I took 1x1 and nailed them inside 3 inches from the bottom this is what will rest on the tank rim so the canapy don't slide down I then used a 1x4 and cut it to size usings 45 degree angel cuts and capped the top of the canapy with these I cut a door out in front the trimmed it out... My light can't be put in side the canapy so I made it were the light sits down in it only a half inch so the fans are still exposed.
