Also something to consider. Thank you for your input. Also do you keep your water level a little lower then say you would if you had a lid? Or no difference? I must say. I kinda like the no lid idea. It would be easier in a lot of ways. What about heat? Does it effect heating the tank and the maintaining the heat of the tank?

I tried to cut my glass tops once to fit around an odd light fixture. The cutting worked, but I cut the wrong places (lol) and ended up throwing the tops away.

But, I only used a $3 glass cutter from lowes. Score real well and snap. Be very careful.

The better bet is probably finding one that fits though.

Same level, about 1/4" from the top of the glass.

Did you try the versa tops from Aqueon? I know they make a top for a 75g.
