Petco told me they didnt have any hoods and that they only had a glass top that I could buy.
Our 5 gallons are also 16x8 and although it hangs over an inch on either side the pieces on the inside of the hood fit perfectly to anchor it down in place so that it won't slide off.
be creative and keep an eye open when you are shopping, you'll find soemthing that won't break the bank. There is a black hood we saw on amazon/petsmart but they were out of stock for less than 15.00. you could keep an eye out for them.
pop a few 6500 lightbulbs in that and you are ready to grow any plant you want.
There is also this one, that I didn't see last time. http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...AvailInUS%2FNo
but would need a base to sit it on, glass lid or something of the like.
