Rimless starfire glass tanks... lids?

Hello,
I am thinking of purchasing a starfire glass tank. Either Cade or Komoda. I absolutely love them. Such gorgeous glass.
They are rimless and no lids.
But I want it for Cichlids. So I need lids.

What are my options?

Thanks.

I can get glass cut at any aquarium. How do I attach it?

Well if it's rimless it's kind of hard to do unless you plan on installing hinges, I would say make it the same size and if you don't want it to slide off than use velcro strips.

Silicone a few small pieces of glass on the inside of the tank to support the top. There's a custom aquarium shop near me, that's what they do.
