What do you guys think?

So, I don't like the clunky hood of my tank. I just got my finnex fugeray and I want something along the lines of an all glass canopy. What do you guys recommend? I have a 25 gallon tank which measures 24"x12".
I'm having trouble finding an all glass canopy for that size? I wonder if I could make a hood for cheap... I'd go without a hood but the splash from my filter may be dangerous to my light!

You could go to a local glass shop and have them cut a piece of glass for you to shape. Also maybe even Home Depot?

Have you already looked at these?

Also, consider not using a top at all. Unless your filter is splashing a lot it shouldn't wet the light. If it is splashing that much you might want to consider adding more water.

I currently have no top on my 36 and I'm using a finnex Ray2. I use a spray bar on a canister filter though, so i don't get any splashing.

Yeah, those look like a good option. I would like to not use a top however I'm using a marineland emperor and I tend to get a lot of backsplash even when the water level drops just below the filter.
