Covering fish tank

Besides tank lids with light, what are some other things I can use to cover a fish tank? I like inexpensive things because I'm not keeping plants in my tank.

I've thought about glass and lexan, but are there any free cutters who will do it for free? Does home depot or lowe's do it for free if I buy their glass?

Yes, in fact I recently had lowes cut a single piece of glass, that I bought there, into two perfectly sized pieces for one of my 75gs. Then I just siliconed on two little henges for handles, worked great.
