You can find a glass versa top on amazon or at petco, make sure you get the right one for your tank. Aqueon will not fit tetra tanks. I can walk your through making one with light diffuse panel, easy! Not good for evap. Only jumpers

All glass lid

Brookster unfortunately where my tanks are they need a close system lid no eggcrate. My living room even with the heat on stays at 62 degrees due to a leak in the walls(saving up to fix it) so cold air comes in from the outside. I have no clue what brand the tank is but I will try and find its box it was a kit from Walmart. I hate the lid and light so I am upgrading . I will check those places out thank you.

Get a can of spray foam to.fix the wall! Post a pic, I do that stuff for a living, i can probably help you out I cut plexiglass glass to fit as a top, it distorts over time, if you flip it weekly it should be fine.. big heat lamps may be an issue.

I got an aqueon top for my tetra 5.5 gal and it didn't fit, the aqueon fits my 20 tall though. Must just be unique to that size.. come on mike, if anyone knows how to waste money on the wrong equipment haha. I'm so versed in trial and error at this point.
