I'm not sure of the tank manufacturer based on the T-Ray and anchor. Where did you purchase the tank?

Also, there IS a tool to cut glass, and cutting glass is pretty simple. However, you would only want to take 1/4" off of the lid and that amount is going to be trickier to snap off cleanly. The tool basically scores the glass once and weakens it along a line. Then you just snap the glass, simple as that.
Charlotte, NC We have Petsmart, Petco, and the local ones. I thought about cutting the glass but as you can see in the picture its only 1/8" too long. I dont want to cut them and break one, i doubt the store would take back broken glass with score marks on it :p I'm just going to return them and try to get the right ones.

I bought it off of craigslist so who knows. I hope its a good tank... Are certain brands of aquariums better than others?

Honestly I don't know. I've only used All Glass but that's what my lfs sells. Measure the inside of the tank where the glass sits and go to the lfs and measure the lids that they have. That's the only way you're going to get an exact match unless you have a piece of glass cut for the tank.

I finally got a chance to go back to the fish store and what do you know, they have marineland perfecto glass tops right next to the versa-tops. I measured them and sure enough they are 1/8" shorter than the versa-tops. They even matched the price of the versa-tops which i got on sale at Petco.

Oh, and i also found out i have a Marineland tank
