Default Top for 5 gallon bowfront

I have a 5 gallon bowfront tank just sitting on a shelf in the basement. I was thinking maybe of pulling it out and turning it into a planted tank for a betta (or something). It came with one of those standard black plastic hoods with just a small window to set a light over. It really concentrates the light on the front part of the tank. I am thinking I will need something better if I want to put a lot of plants in there. I have found a couple light fixtures I like, but the top has me stumped. No one seems to make an all glass bowfront lid for this small tank. I'd go open top, but I know bettas can be jumpers. Any ideas?
