Glass covers

Does anyone know where can I buy customized glass sheets? I am looking for quarter inch thickness. I tried homedepot but they only carry 3/32 inch which is to thin.

Thanks in advance guys.

How much do you need? I've got a pretty big set of glass lids I don't use.

Thanks guys. The length is 28.75". Width can be anywhere between 5.5" to 7". I need two of these.

Mine were over a 7x2 and I am pretty sure they're thick enough for you. I think Ricky is much closer to you though.

Thanks for the reply. Do you know the dimension of the glass? I wouldn't mind drive a bit if it fits.

I have to check mine when I get back. I don't think the length is long enough since it comes with 3 pcs for the 300g DD tank so it is likely less than 24 inch

There are tons of glass/window shops around that should be able to get you what you need fast and cheap. We use D&G Glass on Cobb Parkway, but they aren't anything special. You don't need anything fancy for a glass top.

Are you set on glass? You can buy 82 clear plastic roofing sheets (for greenhouses) that make great covers bc they are so easy to cut to shape for $20
