Any DIY Canopy Plans?

Hi, I would like to build a canopy for my 125 gallon. Does anyone have any canopy plans I could use for it. I'm just look for a standard canopy... just something to give it a little nicer look. I'm also thinking about lighting... I might use a 48" 4 bulb light fixture in it... just standard lighting, but they'll be overdriven. I dont really need much over 1 wpg as I wont be having many plants if it all... Those crazy cichlids would love to have something to drag around though im sure... Would I get rid of my glass hood and just use something like egg crate to cover the tank and have the canopy above it? anyway... TIA

I know of a few members that have done it. Try a search of DIY canopies. I'm sure you'll find a few.

Well I did do a little search, but I don't have much time right now as I need to go to work right now. The ones I saw didnt have plans or anything just showing the finished project.
