Cleaning up excess glass on tank

Hello all!

I guess I should come forth and tell you that this tank is not for fish, but for a reptile enclosure. Therefore, it doesn't (and never will) need to hold water weight. However, the information I need is surely available from one of the fine members of this site who do similar projects

I have built my first glass tank. That being said, I did it using free glass given to me. It was not the exact right size and some (about an 1/8 - 1/4 inch) hangs over. I know it would have been ideal to have it all cut to the right size first, but as stated, it was freely given and I didn't want to risk breaking the entire sheet to cut off 1/8 of an inch myself. I am picturing somehow sanding down the excess. Is this possible? Any methods you could recommend? I have included pictures for
reference.

Thanks for any advice you can offer

You could do it with a Dremel type tool and cylindrical diamond stone. It will take a a while but it can be done.
