Great job on the fixtures, but I think the cheap wood vinyl covering completely ruins the ADA concept, as well as the beauty of your tanks.

Beautiful tanks by the way!

Yes, me too. Nice job. I have to agree on the sticker not being the best choice. Personally I would have used wood slats, still nice though and it looks better than plain sheet metal.

the reason i choose sticker to coating metal sheet is because it very cheap, only $4 for 120x100cm

These hoods look awesome! I actually think the wood grain looks nice, it's a nice dark colour. Retro is coming back yo~

Any chance of a tutorial for this? Also, did you buy the L-shaped poles/bars that the lights hang from, or did you make those too?

Thanks for your compliment,
Pity I dont have any detail photos during work progress, so I cant explain the detail tutorial for this DIY

Lamphood stand ordered from stainless workshop, it cost me about $20
