On the two canopies I made, I used 1x8" boards. The canopy comes down far enuf to totally cover the trim around the top of the tank, adn that leave about 3" between the glass tops, and my AH supply reflectors.
You could always use dowel rods as spacers to lower the lighting brackets if you feel you're losing intensity from the extra 3".
