Yep, it seems like your glass top is adding to you temp issue by not letting your tank cool down by evaporation.

The glass covers the entire top except for about 3 - 4 inches in the back which I have covered with those plastic "slip-on" strips that attach to the glass. I just cut the openings I needed for my skimmer, canister, etc but did not leave any room for anything to jump out.
I'll show my ignorance here and just say I'm not positive what you all mean by "eggcrate". Is it something I would purchase at the lfs or at HD?
I also have a wooden canopy that matches my stand so I don't really care what it looks like under there.

Sorry, it is a perforated plastic covering for office lights and such. HD has it in their lighting section. You just cut a piece to the size of the opening. Air gets out, but not the jumpers.

This may be your solution then.
