Cabinet Door Handles

Anyone know where I can find some Angelfish or Discus shaped handles? Seems like there would be a specialty shop somewhere that would cater to our hobby. Hell they would make a killing from us all changing out hardware on DIY and manufactured stands to make them look better.

Check out the handmade guppy door handles on this thread, page 5, third post from the bottom:

https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/lo...artists-5.html

They're acrylic paint on stained 3/8" pine, sealed with spar polyurethane, and with unlit clear LEDs for the eyes.

We would be happy to make something special for you.

I get a catalog from Van Dykes restorers that has alot of cool stuff.
vandykes.com
May want to check that, or even just google what you have in mind.
I found some KILLER octopus knobs that way, though they were not cheap.
