Looking for a Canopy for a 55


New member
I know this might be a bit far-fetched, but I figured I would post it anyways.

I have one of the standard 55, no-drilled aquariums with the faux wood trim and the plain wood stand. It's 48" long X 12.5" deep by about 18" high. Does anyone have a canopy for one of these or know where I can find one? My father in-law is a cabinet maker, but this isn't exactly high quality stuff we're talking about, and would probably be difficult to match.

I can post pics if I need to. Thanks in advance.

I appreciate the offer. Did you have trouble matching the canopy to the stand? I may just have to build my own if I can't find one for a decent price.
