What about switching to glass instead?

I tried non-tempered glass, tho it was dirt cheap its too fragile. I been lazy but I am wanting to check out glass stores and see if I can get "tempered" glass for the cover, which is usually thicker and not so darn fragile.

With that you will have no worries at all about your bulbs warping your cover, and I have it feeling will be "considerably" cheaper then the glass lids you see at the pet store, as things sold specifically for fish tanks seem to be marked up astronomically compaired to the same thing not marketed for a hobbist application.
