If i might add a thought to the lighting? If you go to your local hardware/home improvement store. Get some 1/2" or even 3/8" Black Iron Pipe. You can set the tank on a small square of plywood, with a "lip" of plywood extending behind the tank. With the BIP get 2 floor flanges, the pipe threads into the flange, and the flange screws to wood. You could possibly even run the wiring inside the pipe. A few elbows and another smaller strip of plywood, mount the lights to it, and another floor flange above and there it is. I would try it. it would look very similar to the original light rig, much more so than the canopy.
