Glass Covers: Aqueon or Marineland?

I have a tetra braced 55 gallon tank and I will be needing a pair of glass covers to go beneath my Current Satellite LED+ 48. Has anyone tried either the Aqueon aqua-versa or the Marineland? The stated measurement of 23" on the Marineland make me feel it is a better fit than Aqueon's 23 1/8. Anyone use either of these with the Petco-sold Tetra tanks?

make sure you measure your openings to the ⅛ inch. I had to cut the glass on the versa top because it was too wide for my 55g tetra tank
