    Would love to change out the Tetra hood on my 10 gallon to a Versa Top

    Can't Qualify my Acrylic, as it's got a molded and fused on acrylic top.

    Ditto to the glass top, with or without a canopy. The plastic hoods offer little to no varience in light choice. I currently have a plastic hood on my betta tank that's driving me nuts (hey, it was free) because the cats shattered the glass top and broke the original tank. Once I get moved, I'm building a canopy for a ten gallon. They don't make them, so this should get interesting. :)

    Yep. I use Veratops on my tanks and I love'em.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    Glass tops are vastly superior to plastic ones - besides better lighting options, they are so much easier to clean. They seal better due to their weight over plastic. Better still, unlike the plastic that will frost over, this does not happen to glass so easily and is easy to clean using vinegar. Large complete wood hoods are best but very pricey.
