    Default 22 x 16.25 tank hood?

    0 Not allowed!
    I recently purchased a 75 gallon tank on Craigslist. It came with a mis-sized glass canopy for the top and a giant 48 inch hoodlight. The glass canopy is also missing one of the largest pieces. Roughly 1/4th the tank is uncovered due to this, plus there is a 6 inch strip at the back along the whole thing which is also uncovered due to it being undersized.

    There are two slots for hoods on the top and they measure 22x16.25. I haven't been able to find any hoods that size by googling it.

    If anyone can direct me to where I can buy one that size, or if someone has another suggestion that would be very helpful too.

    I've was recommended simply buying a piece of cut glass to fit over the tank. A heck of a lot cheaper than buying hoods, especially due to the rare size.

    You probably need a 48x18 hood. I dont think you can buy each half by itself. The box gives the dimensions of each half.

    I would have had to buy one of these:

    And Amazon is the only place I've been able to find one.

    Instead I'm going to spend $14 on two pieces of cut glass to fit over the holes. It's a much cheaper solution.

    My tanks are all open tops. I don't use any kind of canopy or lid.

    If you have a cat who's stupid enough to try to jump on top, you need something.

    Finally got full glass covers for my tanks - really cut evaporation losses and dust issues. Finally, prevents my hatchetfish from jumping out. Really like them (glass covers and the hatchetfish, too) and keeps things from falling in but I, at least, don't have to worry about that issue!
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.
