    Hi there, just wondering if there is anyone in the Cape Town area that builds canopies for tanks? I need to get a canopy made for my tank that can house my lighting and clean up the appearance of my tank.....

    dude its easy but you need a starting point. if you used your imagination you could even build a suspended canopy out of wood and spray it with a silver paint to look like something bought.

    i would gladly help with the build but im a little far, if you have questions feel free to ask.
