    There should be numrous instructions online. I haven't seen step x step instructions here for canopies. Everyone seems to have their own style they like.

    I have not seen a step by step thread on this either

    Below is how I built my canopy. It's not really a step by step instruction, but it might give you a few ideas

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Here is one that I did. It works best on smaller tanks.

    Here is a very detail diy canopy.

    The one that I built myself is very similar to this one.

    I just finished this yesterday. I kinda combined the two ideas above. I built a skeleton frame and covered it with thin lauran wood. I only used one set of hinges to open the hood. However, to perform major maintenance or clean the filter I have to take the canopy off.

    Here is a canopy I created a long time ago. I wouldn't recommend this one though.

    These are a great piece of work
    but are these durable as it is made from wood
    here in india we only use the metal and fibre ones
