Can anyone tell me where to get a glass top for a 72 gallon bowfront in the vancouver area? I am trying to reduce my evaporation and my acrylic bowed on me after 2 weeks....


Thanks !

take some cardboard and make a template of the opening. take it to you local glass supplier and have them make you some - shouldn't cost more than $50.

better solution is auto top off
glass top is going to reduce your gas exchange and increase heat.

+1. Unless you have humidity issues in your house. There are several inexpensive DIY top-off's. I really like my Tunzee ATO.

If you have a controller, you can set it up with some float switches, etc.
