Hood Question

I'm looking a buying some new hoods for my 55 gallon tank and have a question about the sizes, are the advertised sizes the actual size or are the shorter then that?

My openings are just under 23 1/2 inches so would a 24 inch hood fit or will it actually measure to 24 inches?

Thanks for any help.

Is it the 55 with the bracket in the middle of it?

Was looking at these from petsmart

Aqueon Fluorescent Deluxe Full Hood - Lighting & Hoods - Fish - PetSmart

But like I said the 24 inch if it is actually that size will be too big
