Get a piece of cardboard, trace the tank and de duct the lip, give the glass guy the template. Very little margin for error! You can customize filter and heater cut ours this way to.

Good luck! Make sure to allow for the lid to fall into the lip, not sit on top!

I have a 92G Corner tank and have searched for a glass top with no avail. Any idea where I might find one? Ive done all kinds of internet research to try to find one.
