Cracked Glass

To get better reach to the tank I took off the lid and light. Before I know it-
- I've stepped on the glass that protects the light from the tank. So, is it still useable? Putting the broken pieces in and over each other it's about 90-95 percent covered. But what could I use to secure them?

Thanks in advance.

Clear packing tape will do to hold it all together for now....replacement glass is easily ordered/purchased from your LFS.

Glass installation companies should be able to cut you a piece of glass for very little cost.

You should be able to get a piece of glass for really cheap easily... You can get it form a home store, and they will cut it for you... Check the glass selection though... You want something close to the thickness of what you already have. They sell thin stuff that will shatter like egg shells... Don't buy that. Just use some aquarium sealant to stick the new glass in... Shouldn't cost more than $10 I would think.
