Small pics, but from what I can see it looks very nice. Poplar for the canopy, right?

Nice and clean! I like the double-hinge thingy... my solid wood canopy makes me wish for a better design each time I have to lift it up (which is usually several times a day). It has come down twice by accident... once it broke both glass covers, and once my arm was in between the cover and the tank rim... ouch.

Looking forward to your journal!

Thanks Planted Tank, I'd be lost without this valuable forum and its members.
