You don't need a hood. You can take plastic veggie wrap and stretch it over the top, works just as well as a hood (I think better), and keeps in a nice humidity layer over the water. It's an OFL rec that I've been using in place of hoods for several months with great success. :)

You just take a sponge and rubberband it to the outflow, letting it hang into the water. It'll immediately baffle the filter outflow a great deal, and once the sponge gets really good and wet, it'll actually baffle even more so that the water movement is almost non-existant. This was posted on here somewhere by another member...and I wish I knew who it was, because they definitely need credit! :)
