    If your woodworking skills are even average you'd be able to fashion something from wood and paint it to match the tank/stand.

    There are some really nice designs to make a canopy, and they are really simple. Just google "DIY aquarium canopy"
    Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.

    I was thinking maybe something out of acrylic?

    possibly glue some leds into it? make a snazzy lighting effect?

    or do you think the light would get too hot for it? its only a meter long fluro could it make enough heat to warp it?

    Not so sure about acrylic. I'd be worried about heat as you suggest.
