I have exactly Zero rimless tanks in my house (Over 20 Rimmed Tanks) so I dont have a picture of the lid on the tank itself. Maybe I can dig for one as I know I have posted a picture of one on a tank that someone had sent to me. I did snap a shot of the corner so you can them as they were designed to sit flush with the tank so the screen doesnt accually stick out above it. On the rimmed tanks they simply sit inside the rim if you want pictures of tehm let me know as I have lost of those!

Here are some pictures...

Well the largest door I can make would be around a 6" by 6" door... It would cost a bit more then the smaller ones but it can be done.

6 x 6 would be perfect. I would want 3 all for rimmed tank. One of the smaller regular size doors for a rimless tank. And 2 of the corner cutouts one being for a rimless tank. How much would that be?

@MrsBugmaster I can probably get that upto about 5x5" for the actual opening. My print plate is only 8.5x8.5"

Shoot me a PMjust so I get your messages and I can get you quoted if those sizes will work.

I'd be interested in a set made for our tank. Standard 180 (6x24x24) with dual corner overflows. 3 radions mounted with RMS arms (1 per section). Can you make the sections have like a hinged part like a glass lid where I wouldn't have to take the whole section off to do like algae feedings?

Hey Jax,

Shoot me a quick PM so I dont loos you as I only have been getting about half the alerts from these forum posts... Pretty frustrating... I can pretty much do whatever is needed to be honest. All the tops are custom made and with the 3D Printer we can make just about anything.

Last year I asked Jeff to make me pieces so that the spline channel is on the bottom giving the finished product a cleaner look. Took a few attempts but Jeff is someone that will make it till your happy and mostly at his expense, great guy!
Wanted to post some photos of his pieces that allowed for a bottom side channel frame, enjoy.

Can you make me something like this? I cut 2 of those corners and hot glued them together. If you can kinda round it off that would be even better.

OMG! Thats exactly what I need! Ive spoken with him via PMs and he said he can do it for me. He just needed some measurements and I replied back with them. That looks so much better than my hack LOL! Would like the groove for the spline to be on the bottom tho.

Hello Everyone, Just a quick heads up on all of the requests.

Well I have some bad news and some good news. I actually am taking a break from building tops as I got pretty burnt out trying to keep up with the demand. Each one was unique so I would be forced to put in at least 7-8 Hours labor into each one. It just wasn't worth it for me anymore.

The good news is I still make the kits for them. I can supply everything but the framing. You can get that from your local hardware store if you have any interest in building your own top.

Thank you so much for reaching out to me on these, and I may start building them again some day but as of right now I simply dont have the time running my Fish Quarantine Business, our new build out for the fish room and my normal job.

I am doing everything as quick as I can, but I am only one guy so it takes some time. If you are in any sort of hurry I apologize and you may be able to find others that can do the same work on here. Thank you all for the support, and I am doing the best I can.

Jeff
