Good idea. I will check that dimension this evening. The front 1/3 of the canopy lifts for tank access so I may not get much more room even using the diagonal since the 55 is such a "skinny" tank...

Thanks for the heads up. I have a 55 acrylic that I picked up on CL for dirt cheap & now I know why. I spent as much on acrylic buffing stuff as I did on the tank, stand & canopy :mad: It looks...
