I'm going with the no lid. Yes, I know the jumping rate; but it should be alright. And if I have doubts, I'll just put the hood over the lamp. lol

Russell, I may have to make a cover if I can't find another light fixture. I've been searching, and found this that might work, but I'm not sure how well it actually will.

I also found a marineland LED strip, but it seemed like it required a glass top...

I had a heck of a time finding a hood for my odd-shaped five gallons so I feel your pain.

You can buy submersible LEDs in all sorts of colors. They come in adhesive strips so you can put them around the inside and you can buy them by length. Not sure how they would work for plants, though. I bought the blue "Moonlight" ones on eBay.

Here they are as an example. I bought from this seller and received them in around a week.

I did see some like that also. They were actually bubble strips, but I suppose I could just use them as lights.

There is a way to seal the Hawkeye lights with silicone so they won't degrade. I don't quite recall how it is done but I think the reviews on the Wal-Mart or Amazon websites describe it.

I have the AquaView 360 3 gallon and had the same thing happen to mine. It's a drawback on just about any of the Hawkeye/KollerCraft/Tom's aquariums. OTOH, they make very inexpensive aquariums that are quite sturdy, so...
