Good day to all. I have been slowly prepping my aquarium upgrade and am determined to find something to cover the AIO sump box section. I had a DAS 60g with internal filtration, old school AIO (got the tank in '98) and I used old crusty filter socks to cover that area to prevent algae growth and light overflow. It also helped to get it quieter, so another plus. Now I have a IM SR-80 and I would like to find either someone who makes lids for this section or to see what the great collective is doing to cover that area. The tank is a central piece in my living room and i want it to look sleek! For those who don't look at AIO's, i get wanting a sump underneath, but it's just so easy now with these larger tanks. Love this tank, only regret is not getting the SR-120! lol

thanks everyone for your help, ideas. Photos welcome so I can see what you do!

I've been looking into to this as well. Something like the older Red Sea AIO tanks with the flip down/stand cover. I think it was Red Sea.

Not sure about your exact tank, but maybe this will help

something like that, but they don't have for the larger IM's. I may end up making one on my own, but something already done would be great cause my diy skills at times are less than desireable
