My hubby FINALLY got his workshop done and the first thing on his to do list is make me a new stand and hood for my 55G. That's black paint right? I want to stain mine really dark espresso.

I used black gloss enamel. I wanted oil based paint to protect from any water spillage.


*update*
I have added plants, driftwood, and some of my rainbow fish to my tank. Tomorrow i plan on installing my moonlights.
Ill try to post some more pics too.

Great idea. If I get my wish with the dark espresso stain, I'll definitely be using some type of a heavy duty waterproofing clearcoat. Updated pics would be great!!

Looking good!

Do you think you could get some pictures with the tank lights on and the room dark?
