Aquarium Hood / Lighting

Postby andy_mackay » Wed Jul 07, 2010 6:19 pm

Hi all,

As you may have seen from my pics in the My Tank section my aquarium is currently open topped with just some condensation covers protecting my kids from throwing things in! :text-lol: Altough the malawis did seem to like the red london bus they got in!

Anyway, Im not very good at DIY and wanted a hood for my aquarium and found this one on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Aquarium-Tank-Hoo ... 1c13053031

Just wondering what you guys thought of it and if it was worth the buy it now price or indeed anywhere else i could get a hood of this size for a reasonable price.

Ml loving dad who is an ex joiner is building me a stand as its currently on an Ikea TV bench but goes by the old school joinery wheere everything weighs a ton so doesn't want to try a hood incase it crushes the tank!

Thanks

get you dad to build one to match the cabinet. It will look much better in the long run and wont affect the condensation covers.
The one on e-bay looks like you could have trouble trying to fit them in as the lip sits inside the glass.

Cheers guys,
The glass is 1.5cm thick. I've tried explaining it to him but he's a stubborn old fart! lol

I'll just buy some "extra" supplies and "find" them when he's finished doing the cabinet! lol Then he'll do it for me!
