My custom acrylic lid

I absolutely hate the lids included with the Aqueon frameless cubes so I ordered a few sheets of acrylic and some hinges from Tap Plastics and made my own. The handle is 3d printed.

Yeah that looks amazing! What did you use to cut out the equipment holes?

 

I find a variable speed plastic blade dremel to be quite useful if you like clean lines. I set my speed low and move away if it starts getting too hot.

That's exactly what I used lol

Looks Nice! 

 

Do you find that the acrylic saggs over time?  I made one for my 5g but gave up on it after it started sagging too much.  I want to try again but I want to make sure I get it right
