Wow I really like that rock background! Im going to have to try that on this tank.
Sorry it took a while to get some photos up. It turns out my computer got a bug and now makes up its own mind on what it wants to do, mainly lock up!
Cost: So far 10 bucks for the hinges and a sheet of veneer "sp?" Not counting nails, glue that I already had. Most of the wood is scrap picked out a outdoor pile behind the shed. Tank was for free!
I still need to poly coat it. With the weather/ temp it takes up to a week for the stain to dry so I just put it to use for a week or two.
Going back to my other post about shimmering light in the tank I found with the help of you all that it is caused by a single or more light source set high above the tank. It will have three LED lights on the hood, 2 to the side and 1 center to the back. The top will be open. I wanted to make it odd, like nothing you will see in the store.
The poly coat should make the wood grain pop a little more.
