I have one that came with my 55. It has never been used. I would be willing to sell it to you if you are interested, but I was figureing on getting $50.00 for it which would include shipping.
It is the one piece kind.

Any decent pet store will have them. PetCo, PetsMart should have them in stock.

A standard 55 gallon tank takes two canopies. Here is a link at Drs. Foster and Smith. You will need 2 each of the 24".
