I have a flat-top semi-closed plexi tank with the midspan light opening and 2 openings at the rear for filter equipment. I have a 2-bulb PowerSubcompact light fixture that covers the front opening. I have been using a folded towel to cover the rear openings, and to keep out dust.

If I were to buy a combination fixture/cover I could have a cover that hinges behind the light, but I want to keep the PowerSubcompact fixture. Anyone know of a supplier that sells covers for the newer plexi-tanks that either covers under the light, hinging behind it or is only a 1/2 cover that sits behind the light?

I have searched everywhere, and I have found that the covers sold only come with a cover/fixture setup. I priced to have a custom plexi cover made, and it is not cheap. My tank is a 60 gallon apx. 48*15 with the rounded front corner
