Any info on how you made it? Material, etc?

That looks like exactly the setup I'm hoping to make.

Hi chris
I bought acrylic panels from ebay and i asked the seller to cut a doorway in one of them. I gled them together and then to ensure they were stick added black contact paper around all the edges inside and out to ensure the box was secure. I black out the whole box so my lights dont shine into the tank and make it green. I rely on just the led strip light around the outside of the tank to light up my tank.
I lined the floor with yoga mat! Ha
I secured on my old terrapin basking dock as the ramp ans attached the clamp lamps to the side of the box.
Finally i made th stand with wood and nails i got from b &q but i discovered im a horrible handyman its very rough but it just about does the job!
Anything else u need just ask! :)
