Glass hinges

We recently came to own a 75 gallon oceanic but it had no glass top. We went down and had cutoff glass cut to fit and it is fabulous. Our only issue is finding the strips of plastic that go in-between that serve as hinges

Does anyone know where we can find them???????

Is your glass 1/8" or 3/16" thick? You can buy both the hinge and the plastic backsplash strip in 6' lengths online from Foster&Smith, or smaller lengths here: Cheap aquariums, aquarium hoods, breeding fish, aquarium stands and canopy’s

Duct tape is amazing. In the world of horses it is a necessity, and now it apparently is in the world of fish too!!

In loving memory of Pansa Princess, the greatest horse who ever lived. May you rest in peace.

I went to Foster & Smith and order the hinges and handles. Thanks for the help!

We kinda got the run around. One LFS said go to the hardware store and the hardware store said to go to the LFS. What a pain! Lol. And neither one of them carried it!
