For instance, I have my tank completely plumbed from underneath.  There is no
need for anything to hang over the edge of the tank (not even CO2 line, thanks
to a dry-goods tube inside the tank :).  I could silicone a giant pane of glass
to the top of my tank if I wanted to.  Not that I'd want to. :) 

You can get a number of glass tops (of different designs) that sit within the
frame of your tank (possibly covering it completely from front to back and from
side to side).
