need ideas for 2.5g rectangle (canopy/lighting/top)

I got my betta a 2.5g rectangle tank to get him out of the hex with the elite filter and white clouds (which he hated.) He's very happy in there but it has no top of any kind or lighting. It is very plain at the moment and no plants of course. I am trying to figure out how to put a light in it so i can plant it. Suggestions? Been there, done thats?

I just received my 12" Coralife aqualight for my 2.5g. It's 36 watts (2X18) and it rocks. I bought the legs that attach to the light. The only downside to the light is that it is wider than the tank. I solved that problem by adding a few pieces of scrap wood accross the top of the tank. I'll attach them to the legs later in the week.
