I bought the tank off craigslist and was listed as a 55gallon but I don't think it is.. Here's the dimensions

48" x 13" x 17"

Measured for glass only didn't include the braces that hold the tank together. What size tank do I have? So I can find the right hood.

Any help would be much appreciated

the fishlore calculator says its a 46g tank....you can try it by yourself also.
and as a suggestion i can tell you that if you cant find any suitable hood for your tank recently....then you can make a DIY temporary hood with Styrofoam. i have used it for one of my tank.

If your tank is a "standard" size, I recommend the Versa Top line of glass lids for tanks. I have two of them, one on my 40g and one on my 10g. Build quality is good. They have them on Amazon.

It has a brace in the middle.. I measured the two sides at 22" inside the lip. I can't seem to find a glass lid that fits it.

Hey, you may have found out already, but your tank sounds like a 40 long, 48"x 12" x 16"
Vinyl gutters do work well for diy with CFL 6500k bulbs.
