Show off you bow front tanks!

Sorry, mine is not setup yet.

But please share pics of your bow fronts I would like to see how your set up looks and if you have a canopy.

I am about to purchase a light hood system for my 72g and would like to conceal the hood (or atleast conceal the space between the water surface and hood, approx 6-8").

Thanks!

Are you going to stay FOWLR? I couldn't see a pic of how your light was setup, is it just resting on the top of the tank?

I need to figure out a simple way to build a canopy for my light hood to rest on top.

I have th 72 gal reef ready system from Oceanic. I have a couple full tanks shots in my gallery. See what you think. I really enjoy the panaramic view the BF gives you from the front. It does take a bit more effort to clean though.

I decided to go canopy-less and used eggcrate instead on my 46 gal bow. I have Coralife PC's elevated over the tank. I will try to post some pictures in my gallery later this week.

That looks nice! In the pic "uploadable_pics_008", how many lbs LR is that? What about in the "full tank shot"?

Also, I couldn't see your canopy. Are you using the Oceanic canopy? If so, what type of lighting are you using?

I'd like to see this. I may go this route as it seems like the easiest method. How did you make the riser legs for your light hood?
