I'll have to get a better look at the tank. Maybe I can work out some sort of brace if the canopy is not going to hold alone. This weekend I'm going to the local aquarium so I can check out what lids they have there.

Would you consider using a screen top? I believe they are intended for turtles and amphibians when kept in an aquarium. My local pet store has one on a community goldfish tank. They are flexible and will probably keep your cat out of the tank.

If your cat is at all interested in your fish, i recommend a hood. My cat is very small and light, but she balances on her back legs to kind of hang off the side of the tank to watch and pat at the fish with her front legs. If it wasn't a secure and heavy lid, this would definitely tip if off and break it. Like glass panels definitely wouldn’t cut it with her, and she only weighs 7.7 pounds!
