Tank topper

Post by Nicole00 » Thu Oct 15, 2020 12:16 am

I’m wanting to make a topper for my tank but I couldn’t find any information or videos on it. Can y’all give suggestions on what to do?

Here is my old 20 gallon with a 2.5 gallon topper Image
The tank wasn’t very big and it’s kind of hard to see in the photo but all I did was line it up and use duct tape to hold it together and Velcro is also another good option. I know there’s a few other people that have much bigger tanks with toppers so wait to see if they reply to this too. Hope this helped

Pretty much even with large toppers they do what you did ^_^ many recommend that the toppers tank is at least the same width as the tank on the bottom, as it's a lot easier to work with (and cleaner IMO) tanks of all least the same width or width and length.
