Looking for any suggestions for this.....
Ok, so I have a 100 gallon tank (72"x18"x18") that has a weird top frame on it, the top frame only goes around the top like any other top frame, but doesn't have any kind of lip to it where you could add any sort of hood to the tank so the fish won't jump out.
So I'm stuck creating my own DIY top frame so I can add a hood to the tank, here's my thoughts on a couple ways to go about this;
1. Going with some sheet metal and create a lip to it and go that route, since my uncle does sheet metal fabrication at his work.
2. Getting (2) 75 gallon/90 gallon hoods, and cutting them down to fit on each side my 100 gallon tank and then silicone them together.
Either way I plan on getting (2) 1/2" sections of glass to create braces for the tank, since my 100 gallon tank was made without any sort of braces. Oh and my tank is made with 1/2" glass . . . .
