I'd like my 75 gal reef to take off. Then I'll be happy.

I am finally getting around to building my sump. I need to purchase glass for the micro bubble trap. My 40gallon breeder which is my sump/ref has the following dimensions 15.75 " Height
18" external Width Tank uses 3/16 " glass

I would just take it to a glass shop and let them do it. They will make it perfect then you can silicone it in. You only need them to sand one edge. The glass shop I went to only charged me 30 bucks.

I have read somewhere that the glass for the bubble trap should be 2/3 the height of the sump. Does that sound correct?

No. It would depend on how high the first partition is. It's got to be lower than or equal to that, and I would make the first partition the height of the recommended skimmer depth if possible. The raised partition simply needs to be able to handle whatever water you are going to push under it. I used a few cd cases to hold up my second panel while it was being glued in. Keep in mind how much the sump is going to fill up when the power goes out too. You need ample room for that extra water.
