75 Gallon Planted Tank - Lighting Help


Background: I have a current USA nova extreme 48" with 2 T5HO. This light worked great in the basement, Water evaporation wasn't a concern.

Well I moved my tank up stairs, I would really like to cover the top, since every time I walk in the living room I see the ripples in the water. I'm sure there's something on the market, but I can't seem to find it.

I'm looking for lighting T5HO x2 or LED lighting that also has a full black hood. Capable of full spectrum 5000 - 7000k lighting. The tank is a standard petsmart topfin tank. 4'L x 16"W

Advice? Thanks!

Hi, I just have perspex from the hardware store covering mine. In other tanks I have had glass cut to fit over the top of tank.
