Your hood shouldn't be submerged in the tank, so really you're just looking for something to protect the wood. Any good polyeurathane (sp?) will help it have a long life even near the humidity and splashing of a tank. It's the same stuff they sell to guard porches and decks against the elements. Just make sure it dries completly before bringing it near the tank.
