I have been slow on doing much with the canopy because i needed to make a stand for my 75 cause the old(10+year old) store bought stand was failing and I need to move that to the finished basement to uae as a frag tank....hopefully things will be back on track soon with the canopy and lighting for the 150 tank

Exclamation OK canopy is Built!!

Ok I must apologize...I forgot to take my camara with me to my friends house to take pics of the build but I will be putting up pics of completed canopy unstaind as of yet.....That is my project for this week.

The question I have now is....should the inside be painted ...(white or black) or Stained ??? Would a white paint be good for reflective light ???

Looks good. I painted the inside of mine with a couple coats of white Glidden exterior latex.

ok cool....but what was your reasoning behind using the paint instead of staining it like everything else???

White reflects better than any other color, but it probably doesn't make a real big difference inside the canopy with reflectors.
