Versa Top Not Deep Enough

Hello everyone,

Before I put my LED light fixture on, I purchased an Aqueon Versa Top. I was super excited for the all-glass enclosure on my tank. I carefully cut the vinyl strips (boy was that a pain!) and made sure everything would fit.

When I set it on the aquarium, I noticed that with the lid shut and flush with the back of the tank, there is about a 1/2 in gap at the back. I purchased the 30 in model for my 29 gal tank, which is what it's made for (according to Aqueon).

So I guess my question is: Is this a common issue with the Versa Top lids? Should I be worried for my 75 gal I want to set up?

You could hot glue this in the trim and paint it black if you wanted to.

It's really cheap and can be found at lowes or Home Depot it's called "outside corner moulding"
