Default 36 Gal bow front glass lid

Hey folks. I am trying to figure out if there is a way I can use a glass lid for this 36 Gal bow front aquarium. This aquarium does not have the trim on the inside that the glass lid would rest on. Does anyone know if there is a product you can purchase that would allow the glass lid to sit on the aquarium without falling through, or perhaps an easy fix. I sure would appreciate any help.

An easy fix to do what you seem to be after is to use clips for rimless tanks:


I personally would not trust the gap to be small enough to keep frogs in; I use something like these on a terrarium.

More sophisticated solutions:



Best solution: don't use a bowfront tank.
I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd.

Well I already bought the tank second hand didn't pay attention to the top of the tank lol.
I think I'll try the clips you posted and run silicon in between the clips to fill in the gaps. Thanks for the help!
