Weight of hood?
I am starting my project to build a hood over my 101g tank. It is 60" by 20". I am going to build a hood that will match that and be about a foot and a half tall. Not real sure what it will way, but I am sure it will be more than a couple pounds with the lights, ballast and a very large pieces of 60" x 20" plywood or mdf. That got me thinking about adding that extra weight to the tank and stand. Do I need to be concerned about the glass supporting an extra 20-50 pounds on the top edge. How about the stand. I did reinforce it a little before I put it in, but other than that, it is a regular store bought stand.
