I have one of those old 55gall w/ a slate bottom (yes the one w/ stainless steel trim). I was wandering if they still make a hood or somthing to cover this thing?

If not i got a 55 gal w/ stand for sale for $100.
I dont fell like making a hood...

I'm not sure if they still make them or not, but it takes like a day maybe two to make a hood to fit the tank. You could even just put two pieces of glass together, hinge them or whatever, and just put lights on top?

couldnt you just buy a hood for a regular 55g tank or are the dimensions different?

Yes a "Full-hood" should work I think since it sits on top of the frame rather that in it.... don't get a cheapie like from walmart, those fit inside the lip you don't have.... check an All-Glass or Perfecto Full Hood which rests on top.
