Glass canopies and regulated air pumps in Toronto?

Me again, sorry. Are glass canopies available locally, without mail shipping? Glass is fragile, could arrive damaged.
And, unrelated, which small air pumps have regulated air exit - the small one I bought in Zellers for 5 gal aquarium created total havoc in my hospital tank, wirlpooling all together like a washing machine. I couldn't possibly imagine that air pumps for a small aquariums could come without regulator... Mail order sources will be OK. (mops?)

I suspect not many folks here run air pumps. But if I recall correctly, most will be too powerful for a smaller tank without some sort of an inline valve. I haven't bought a oump in yaers, but can't ever recall seeing one with the valve included.

I bought air pump for 2 gal hospital tank, as an emergency. Valves are in Bid Al's in Scarborough, 2-line and more only. Salesman said that all air pumps are without internal regulation.
Glass canopies are in the same place, but not all sizes are available at the moment.
It's good to have Torontians and Canadians on this forums, much easier to locate the necessary supplies!
