Please excuse the audio in the video once again. I am trying to work with a new camera, and new editing software….. so frankly, im learning. Just turn the volume way up!
This is a tutorial on how to build an aquarium canopy/stand. In this video , i show all materials needed, total cost, and how to put it together. This is the final video to this build.
Keep in mind, I kept this as simple as possible. Once i wrap this in plywood, the plywood gets screwed directly to the frame, so the strength would then increase even more. The reason for keeping most of my builds as simple as possible, is so that a wider range of people can actually do them. I try to keep tools, and complications to an absolute minimum.

im here knowing the house was 3x bigger but still not big enough XD
I can't hear a damn thing
I have made my own fish tank hood from wood and looking to paint it black. What paint is safe to use?
would you not get better lighting by painting the underside of the canopy gloss white?
not practical for the basic hobbyist
Nice one Joey!
very detailed plans for that I found on Stodoys.
I was hoping for kitchen backsplash over it , that is my idea I'm thinking about trying!
I'm sure you mention it somewhere in one of the videos, but how do you keep evaporate from causing mold to grow on the inside of the canopy? Is there a particular sealer you use?
I was hoping to see the wrapping. I want to add in two doors and a floor board for storage. Can I do that or no?
Hey man big fan. Been following you for about a year and I have the app too. Just wanna say as an avid fish lover you are like a personal hero to me. Your dedication to your animals is astounding. And these videos on building a stand are an enormous breath of fresh air due to expenses for setting up my 40 gallon. Keep up the amazing work.
Can I build a rectangular canopy but is missing the back bottom beam completely?
Hello! what kind of light do u have over the aquarium?
Nice video! Thank you..
Hey Joey! I've watched nearly all of your DIY videos on stands, filters, building aquariums, ect. I really appreciate how you not only show how you create these projects, but also explain why, as not many channels do this. Anyways, I followed your design for my stand and canopy, with some minor changes, but very close. One thing I would like to suggest for your wrapping is beaded plywood panels. For my 20 gallon tank stand and canopy I used 1 $10 pine panel with a $2 8 foot pine trim. The total cost of my stand and canopy wrapped with trim (minus the screw, which I had) was $36. Thanks for your videos! Keep them coming!
sick background did you make it??
Are those LEDs from Marineland? I like the way they cast the light. That background, is that fiberglass? Got a video of it?
Where do you buy your wood from? Home depot is sooo expensive
Cannot hear. Volume of video is set very low compared to 1/3 and 2/3. Have been learning a lot from these vids so far though!
Where did you purchase your LED lighting?
Wish you did a more detail video on wrapping the tanks, and different design options
You found black glossy paint that doesn't have a strong smell? What kind was that again, that you used? I'd love to get some of that.
Outstanding! Looks awsome. A shop would charge a fortune for a tank like that. Thanks for all your vids. Learned a lot. Cheers.
bloody brill…very good…thank you…love your vid's
