I built a wood canopy for an older 75 I had that had no brace. I also built a matching stand. Very easy, looked better than most store bought I have seen. It was very easy to do and really the only option I could come up with.

You can also go to Home Depot and ask them to cut you off a thin piece of plexi to temporarily cover your top until you can get a canopy or hood.

If you have no supports you can get add in ones. They sit on the lip in the front and back of the tank and have to be cut too size. I would use two seperate hoods. You can oder glass hoods online or buy acrylic and make them.

they sell hoods here
