I'm toying with the idea of getting a glass top for my small 10G tank. It is in my bedroom and it would be nice to view from the top as I walk past it alot.

Are these very common? Can people show me examples as i've only been able to find the "2 sliding panel" type of tops, which I presume need additional "off the top" ballast setups. What I was thinking was a thin ballast with glass either side, giving about 66% visiblity. Using my existing T8 bulb.

I'm not really wanting to change it from a low tech, low light setup, so big lighting isnt really needed.

I'm a UK resident so retailers in the UK would be nice too.
