I purchased a set of glass hinges from my lfs and had 2 pieces of glass cut all for around 25-30$, it looks pro and is still completely see through, as well as with the glass hinges still opens for feedings and cleanings. The other option that I had before the glass was acrylic, however it tends to bow iof you do not have it supported in the middle or with some bracing strips.

I'd vote for the legs. My firefish has never jumped, and I have a completley open top
