canopy help

Recommended Posts

i just got all the pieces for my canopy cut. the guy at lowes said that condensation would make the plywood warp. can i use wood sealant on this canopy or will the chemicals in the wood sealant kill the life in my tank? what would you recommend as a safe wood sealant?

what thickness of wood? Mine has not warped yet, and it is well over 2yrs old.

I would think a sealer is perfectly fine, as long as you give it adequate drying time and don't spray it on over the tank ;)

I have a couple DIY canopies and haven't had issues with condensation. If you're doing MH, I would STRONGLY suggest you make some fans.

as long as u paint the inside of the canopy u wont need to seal it also. the paint will do that.
