44g Pentagon lid/hood - ideas needed

I have to make a top for my pentagon tank, and i need some ideas on what i should usr, or how to make the odd angles on the front. It will be a vivarium, and will will have small lizards in it, so it must be escape proof. I also will require a small door for feeding, misting, ect. And must have easy access to the lights. Im kind of thinking about a false front, like some older buildings have. As the height of the stand/tank make it unlikely to see over the top witjout a lafder unless you are very tall.

A pic of the top of your tank might help.

Is this one of those tanks designed to sit in a corner? If so, those seem to be pretty much a square with the corner lopped off - you may be able to check with a local glass shop, and get a piece (or two) cut to fit.

Yes, its basically a 22" square with a corner chopped off. The tank is in storage currently, so i cant take a pic of it yet.

I need to have screen sections on the top for ventilation. Any ideas?
