[APD] Re: Best glass for replacement lid

Alas, Craig, that was really my point. All-Glass doesn't sell a Versa Top
for their old 125-gallon tanks. They've moved to a design with a center
brace, and adjusted their lid design to match. A couple of years ago they
stopped selling replacement tops for the tanks without braces.

Are the new tops dependent on the center brace(s) for support, or do they just have gaps where the braces would normally be? If they don't need the braces for support, you could get a few strips of Acrylic or Polycarbonate sheet for a few dollars and use them to fill the caps in the Versa Top where the braces would normally be. Just a thought...

It sounds from what I've heard that plate glass is both the cheapest and
probably best solution. I assume from the discussion that that's what my
current lid is made out of. I've managed to go 13 years without breaking it,
so if I buy new materials of comparable thickness it sounds as if I should
be fine. Thanks to all for the help.

Chances are plate glass will be fine for your application. Almost all tanks are made of it, and the only use of tempered glass I am aware of in a mass-produced tank is the bottom of All Glass's 75 gallon tank -- and even there I think it is an option.
