My aunt just gave me her old hex tank, but none of the accessories. I'm so glad I found this thread so I have something to show my dad when I tell him I want to custom build the hood! Mine is about 77 gallons and stands just over two feet high, so I'm going to keep it on the floor and use it kinda like a coffee table once I get the hood put together. I plan on using an HOB
filter but I'm kinda hoping I'll be able to hide it with the hood. Any ideas? If not, no worries... that part will be up against the wall anyways.
Thanks for having an example of the idea I'd been trying to put on paper all day (I can picture things in my mind, but can never figure out how to put them together)!
