Here is a calculator
that Scott Morell has developed to assist you in building your own "High
Profile" aquarium canopy. The high profile canopy is at least
14 inches tall and has plenty of room to place your lighting system even
metal halide. There are options for access doors on the ends of the
canopy and an option to have the back open or completely closed.
All you need to do
is enter the actual length and width of the tank and the height you want
the canopy/hood. A materials list will be calculated and displayed on the
following page along with assembly instructions.
Construct these canopies at your own risk. The authors and GARF will not be responsible for any damage or injury
caused by improper construction. The combination of wood and
water can lead to serious consequences, so please use common sense or consult
a professional carpenter if you do not have the proper experience.
