Here is the stand and canopy I built for my 100 Gal 15 Years ago, The stand was built 6" deeper than the tank and a support stand for the canopy was attached to the stand behind the tank, also providing space for the plumbing to the sump.
These are the only pics I have found of this setup. I know I have more but I don't know where they are, This pic was taken while moving the tank. Notice the dolly under the tank and the water level in the tank, I wouldn't recommend this method of moving but with 4 guys it worked.
This is the canopy open. it has 6 48" T-12 bulbs staggered for coverage and an early moon light, a 3 Watt clear bulb for a night light. the canopy is made out of Oak and Oak plywood for the top, it hinges up for tank access. the reflector is white epoxy paint.
I wish I still had this set up, I sold it for $500.00 about 8 years ago.
