Reefrocks.net also has 50lbs of rock for $85 and maybe you could get that and the rest live.

Why not build your own canopy and buy retrofits? then you could say "Yes Miss, I build the canopy myself" and impress the ladies!

You make one out of plywood, and you paint it to match with your cabinet...and wow!

Equip and salt showed up finally now on to building my sump
And for the last response I can build about anything I built the stand, Hood, lights,and sump for my 55 I don't want a canopy they are big and heavy for a 180 gallon tank and just to let you know its better to build a canopy out of solid wood for moisture purposes thanks for the advice
