I use a Dremmel tool with a cutting wheel to cut the stuff. Set the speed on
high. Also I have a very small (hobby type) jig saw which cuts it fine. You
can make very ornate cuts around heaters and such.
I went out to Home Depot and purchased the lighting tile in the lighting
dept. It was acrylic and it caved into a 5.5 gal tank after about a week. I
found styrene lighting tiles for even less in the drop ceiling dept. I have
not tried one yet but I hope it works.
Now for any old timers out there, I am covering some metal frame tanks. When
I was much younger all tanks had metal frames. I once tried covering one
with glass and the condensation ran off onto the floor. Now that some years
have gone by I find myself once again setting up more and more metal frame
tanks. When I cover the tank how do I prevent the water from running off
onto the floor. I have been making some pretty fancy inserts out of 1/4
plate plexi, etc. is there an easier way? Another question, I have been
glass lining all of my slate bottom metal frame tanks Does anybody know if
the styrene material would work as a tank liner.
