Custom Fish tank stand Answered
I am creating a custom fish tank stand from 2x4s and sheet wood. I plan to paint it black but I ran into 2 problems when I decided I didn't want the hood that came with the tank.
1) The lighting.
I have a pretty good history with LEDs so creating the lighting will not be too hard, only real issue I run into is sealing the lamp. I plan to use an acrylic sheet with holes drilled for the white and blue LEDs. White for day and a row of blue for moonlight on a 3 way rocker. I just dont want water to penetrate the holes from the ports for the light to damage the components.
2) The filter.
This is where I am at a loss. I plan on making something similar to this:
But I have no idea how to an external filter rather than one of the regular table top aquarium ones that would not look very pleasing on a nice stand.
Any ideas questions comments or concerns please ask.
