Ok so I got my 75 from Petland during there dollar a gallon sale, great deal! Now for the life of me I can't find a canopy to fit. Either too big or too small! Tried Pertecto, All Glass and Deep Blue!! Nothing fits!

Anyone else have this problem. Center brace tank and can't find anything for a top.

Called several well known online stores and nobody can seem to help! Petland special? Tank and good luck on a top kinda deal?

Here's a picture.

No, do you see how the glass overlaps the center brace? It doesn't seat right. And when you go to open it falls into the tank because it's not in that recessed area.

You see the picture how it doesn't fit right. And the is the same way. I'll take another pic.

Oh, that sucks. I wonder why the tank manufacturer doesn't make covers to fit? Would it be possible to make one with plexiglass?

Or... you could take it back and get your money back and go topless? I don't keep lids on my tanks.

No lids? On any? I think it would kind of hard since it's well... Transformed.

I only had one fish jump when I kept mbuna... an auratus. Not sure what happened, but the other two I had never did in the 2 years I had the tank. I don't keep lids on any of my tanks. It's unnecessary (except in rare circumstances where you have fish known to jump... cats... something like that), and no top makes maintenance and feeding Sooooooo much easier.
