need a light hood

I acquired a Hamilton Technologies T5 HO Aruba Sun retrofit kit. It is too big to fit into my existing hood. Im looking for a hood that I can fit this into. If I put it in the light hood I have now, I can't slide the clear acylic piece into the hood to protect it from moisture.

Any suggestions?

I am not sure you will find something off the shelf that will work. You could build one if you have the skills, or it is perfectly fine in most cases to just run without a hood or lid. I haven't had a lid on any of my tanks in years.
