Why don't you just buy the (5mm) glass and make it yourself. Small tanks are
so easy
it's just not funny. Have the glass cut to your exact specifications (and
at this size strafire glass isn't too bad) and just glue it toogether.

If you screw is up or don't like the job you did you can just take
it apart, clean it up and do it again.

Here's the last one I made (out of a broken window :-)
