Hey,

Where can one find a Hinged (lenghtwise) lid for a 20 Gallon that doesn't have that acrylic Strip on the end, i would like the glass to go from edge to edge. Or does one have to buy a hinge and some glass and fashion it oneself? If so to the second question, where would one find hinges for glass? (i know where to find glass)

Thanks!

-Cor

I made several 20L lids out of 1/8" glass and the one problem is that the glass bows downward if you set the light fixture on it. One of my pumilios squeezed out in one of the front corners that wasn't seated due to the slight bow in the glass. I'm replacing it with a lid made of 3/16" glass, which isn't as common, but not much more expensive. For tanks that are 24" or less wide, the 1/4" glass seems to do fine.
