Recommendation on a 155g bow cabinet and canopy?

Needing a 14" canopy. Want black. Is the shiny finish easier to clean than the black oak or pine?

Not convinced Oceanics are the best for me this time around.

Why not build your own? You could use black glossy or matte paint. Sand and re-paint until it's really smooth, then poly it, and it should be easy to clean.

that would be a hell of a project for a Bow tank.. I have the black oak AG stand and I really like the oak finish better. The black shows every water spot and is not the easiest to clean.
Got the black because it was a super deal..

Not so hard. Need to trace the tank outline, use thick ply for the straight sides, and 1/4 ply of the same wood (or thinner) for the curved front.
