Glass canopy then get a strip light later on? OR, make your own. Have Lowes/Home Depot cut your glass, you could use poster framing as a frame and cut down a flixiblt piece of plastic and silicone on for a hinge?
Or, check out your local home store and see what acrylic sheets are going for.

You could buy some shower mesh as a temporary fix. It's extremely cheap and would serve your purpose for the time being.

Plastic craft mesh? You could tie a couple pieces together and lay it over top of your tank. That way it's completely jump-proof but still lets in air :)
