29 Gallon Tank Aqueon Versa Top is too short!

My goldfish keeps trying to flood my house, so I broke down and finally got a lid, however the lid doesn't fit! There's about a 1inch gap between the lid and the back of the tank, which is more than enough room for my fish to continue destroying my wall.

What lids are there that fit an Aqueon 29gal tank? Should I try to make the versa lid work, or return it?
 
Solution
I actually have one about a mile away! Could I use one of those suction cup shower safety handles as a handle?
Should be able to. Also, they do sell the Aqueon handles individually on amazon as well. And yes it is a 2" strip on the back.

Almost all lids are made with a gap at the back of the tank so there's room for wires and filters. That's standard.

It should have come with a small plastic piece that you can cut up and fill in the gaps with, though.

Even with the plastic piece it's too short. Without it, there's a 3inch gap.
