    Hi! I want to put myself a linear actuator on the sliding gate to the aquarium. I looked in the internet, there are a lot of offers and the prices are very different. Maybe there are people here who understand this and can advise me what type of actuator is better, manufacturer and where to buy? I will be very grateful.

    I meant top wall with a linear actuator instead of usual.

    I have never come across the need for a linear actuator in an aquarium, (possibly large shark tanks in public aquariums,) but even then I’m only guessing,,
    A picture of what you have and a better idea of what you want to do may help a little more.

    Do you mean to lift the hood or something?
