Considering a hood / cover for the 45cm cube tank (Blau Aquaristik). Primarily because it needs fairly frequent topping up and we may be away for a week or so (and would quite like to cut down topups in the longer term). Considering everything from the cheap plastic covers, to a simple self-build, to manufactured, if it exists. Ideally something that can incorporate lighting (currently a basic Hygger perched across the tank).

Does anyone do after-market covers / hoods?

Check out reef tops, they make lids for reef tanks. It will work also for freshwater

I ordered a piece of perspex with holes cut in for cables and it has bowed quite a bit. Cost was c £40 for a 40x40x40 cm cube. No use in terms of lights being incorporated.
