Custom Acrylic Tops *Tank Toppers* Limited Runs

Recommended Posts

smiz

So figured I would make a dedicated thread for this adventure. I am offering custom made acrylic tops for rimmed and rimless tanks. I am offering three different styles but have no issue doing custom work! Below will be examples of both CAD designs and actual designs.

 

Pricing: Currently we are offering anything 24x24 or close for $130.00 using clear or black.

This covers your standard one piece design with clear mesh as you will see a previous job below.

Custom Mounting option include:

 

Custom Low profile clips

Rubber Feet to hold in place

Routed stepped edge to rest and secure on glass

To achieve the same goal without having to machine the acrylic we are now also offering clip less two layer mounting. This is the same cost as routed and can provide your top with the colored accent as listed below or be clear.

Additional options include hinged options for an additional $20.00..

 

This gives a hinged portion for easy feeding without removing your top.

Two Piece Color Insert:

 

This style allows you to custom the color of your top and can give a very clean look to the lid. Pricing for this style is based on a per order basis (PM for quote).

I would be interested for a eheim 6 gallon tank .. It has 2 round corners and 2 square corners with a filter in 1 corner which mounts on the rim of the tank. We will need also a square notch for the nanobox minitide ..

 

It come with a weird shaped glass cover. Do take a look at the pictures in Google if it is build able and I can send measurements and pics of the tank

Happy Friday NR!

 

So bad news, my screws did not arrive on time so i did not have enough to finish the top for the biocube!

 

Good news, I did finish one part for a double top design and i have pics to prove it!

What about a 'rear chamber cover/top' for the back of an AIO like the Fusion 30L?

Haha this seems to be a very popular request! I am picking up a fusion 10g next week so I can see exactly how they are laid out to try to make something that can secure on the tank and hide the back!

I bet it is :) I believe there were a few threads on doing this since the tanks came out, but no one has made a final product to my knowledge. I think people even talked about how (with an open back for air) you'd need some vertical supports to keep the acrylic from bowing over time? Idk lol, but I'd be interested in one if you do it :)

 

Anywho, I love the look of your tops, very clean!

Thanks for the love! I hoping to come up with something that can slide over the back wall to keep it secure. as for warping that is a tough one as gravity will be heavily against you unlike the tops that have support along all edges.
