I have a 55 G long aquarium and when I do my weekly water changes (DIY custom made canopy) I just unplug my LED
strip and take off canopy and easy access to gravel vac and clean. Im readying up for 125 G (6' long) and will have a custom made canopy (nothing fancy, but heavier) which will hold my DIY T5 lighting, my question is do you take that big piece of canopy off weekly for your water changes? Or should I have the canopy made in such a way I can open the lid large enough to easily vacuum and stuff? Right now in my 55 G I vacuum back and front, left/right and will need to have same free space to clean.
