My Aunt gave me my uncles old tank... lighting fixture is broken... its an old stile where the lid is one piece and the lighting fixture is under it just above the water... anyone knows where i can get a new lighting fixture or a new lighting fixture and lid combo? the top is above 15x15.

you can probably get it at one of the sites that specifically sell those size...its not going to be cheap if they dont make them anymore

In your situation, Lariat, I would get good measurements and go to a glass shop to have 2 pieces cut to fit the tank top while leaving a little space at the back. You can buy both the glass top hinge material and the plastic strips for placing across the back in bulk at some local fish shops. Once you have the water surface covered like that, you could build your own top out of wood or almost any material that you know how to work with. I mount light fixtures inside wooden covers because I understand wood but metal tops have been used historically on fish tanks with great success.
