I don't know your living situation, but you could use:

A textbook (hard cover).
A baking pan / cookie sheet.
A box.
A large picture frame.
a DVD player / VCR.

lol.

To cover temporary tanks before, I have used towels. Spread the towel across the top of the tank and secure it using clothes pins, chip clips, or whatever else may work.

If you have a cat, the cover needs to be frim/strong enough to support the cat's full weight if it jumps on top of the tank

Or just strong enough to support a stuffed animal. Cats won't jump if the space is already occupied. I keep cheap stuffed animals on hand just to keep my cats off certain places, such as the lids to my fish tanks.
