I'm thinking of building a nice canopy for my 90 gallon. Im wanting to top it off with some nice crown molding and a hinged top. Does anybody have any suggestions or plans for one. A materials list would be great too.

I built mine about a month ago. Just google plans and there's a site you can go to and type in the measurements of your tank and it will list the supplies you need and how to build it. I just used 3 regular door hinges on mine and L brackets on the corners. Be sure to have a "kickstand" or something to hold open the lid. I just made mine out of plywood and some trim so it's not that nice but it works.
