vid works fine. that's a nice lid... what other details can you give about the fabrication process?

the only issue i have with your project is the material used. i'm worried that after a period of time, the polycarbonate will start to sag from the humidity and lights.

otherwise it looks awesome on your tank.

im not too worried about it sagging, its quite thick, it'll last this setup's life probably. well, it was basically a spare piece of aplastic from TAP plastics here in CA, and i just got it cut to an 11.25" x11.25" square and just drilled feeding holes and the other cut were made with my trusty sabertooth handsaw :)

I just went to a glass shop and cut one and sand it of the edge... they did all these for me for a good price... and got rid of my poly one.
