Canopy repair needed
On my 65g tank I just got used there is some slight surface damage on the inside of the canopy. The canopy looks to be made of some type of plywood that has been stained. The moisture has started to lift the outside layer of wood to where it can flake off. I don't want that stuff dropping into my tank...
I'm going to be doing a lighting retro so I'm thinking about pulling the canopy, scrubbing off any loose material and then placing a new piece of plywood inside the canopy and fastening it in place. The canopy is still perfectly fine when it comes to structure. I just want to seal up the damage that has been done already.
Can I place the new material inside the canopy and then coat that with some type of water proof paint or epoxy? I don't want to rebuild the canopy since there is no way I could ever match it to the stand.
