Online source for cut glass?

No glass shops around where I live. I'm thinking about building my next tank. It will be a nano tank. Does anyone know of glass shops that will ship?

Price for glass was good, price for shipping...OUCH! I think I'll just buy a new tank.

Plus with the way everything that shows up at my house looks, do you really want to try and have that much glass shipped anywhere?

I typically have pretty good luck with shipments, but you're probably right.

Didn't try Lowes. I want low iron glass, not sure if they carry anything like that. Glasscages had a great price on the glass, it was $40 something to do a 16 x12 x12 tank with a Starphire front but shipping was $30+. So it'll end up being an $80 tank.
