Prices can vary widely from supplier to supplier. Try to find out if there are any insulated glass manufacturers in your area and ask if they would consider a direct sale to you. Remember that a 4 by 8 foot sheet of glass is very difficult to move without a proper glass rack and some experience. You may want to inquire about cutting it in half.

yeah, they will cut it in half for free :) so far this is the only place i have been able to find that does sheet glass, not just car stuff.

I have a question what size viv are you making? You a 100 bucks in, so just wondering how cost effective this project is going to be.
Just curious.
I seems like your building a 75 gallon tank.
I am all for doing it myself , just wondering.

i am building tanks that are 11x20x15 for a custom project. i need 8 of that size and 4 11x20x24 tanks. i think i may go with plywood, it is heavier but cheaper.

Check craigslist, I have found pretty good deals, around $25 for pieces close to that. I usually search " 1/4 plate glass"
