I think that I need to clarify: I have a glass top on the tank now, and the divider goes to right under the black rim on the tank, and the water is 1/2 - 1" below that - it would take a precision jump with a twist in the air to get to the other side!
My reference to a canopy was because I think I am becoming known for DIY stuff and my wife and I are getting pretty good at wood canopies (to hide all the hardware!).
I just hate seeing a light fixture on top!
But thank you all for the compliments. We are working hard for our fishy's!
