DIY Hood Design Help
My husband is willing to help me build
a hood for my 75 gallon aquarium. He is
gone on business freqently and I need a
hood that is easy for one person to take
off the tank for maintenence. One thing
I don't want is to have the lights
suspended over the tank. The tank is in
the living room and that would be a
I am debating between a hood where the
whole top lifts up with the lights attached
or the kind where a hinge is in the middle
of the hood and the whole front can open.
I would like to be able to easily reach to
the bottom of the tank so I don't have to
take the whole hood off that often.
If anyone has any ideas on this I would appreciate them.
One other thing. If there is a wood trim
around the top rim to support the hood it
adds several more inches that you have to
reach over to get into the tank. Is there
a way to design around this so that the
hood is supported but you can easily reach
into the tank without getting on a stool.
