They did for the piece I got cut, but like I said just call to make sure; and also to see what time the guy who does it is going to be there

rozdaboff If anyone knows of anyone working with acrylic - that would also work.

rozdaboff Won't the plexi warp, Gordon? That was the problem I always had with it for amphibian tanks. It might serve as a good interim solution though.

Jellie - there are a couple of Lowe's on the other side of the river in NJ and NY - but nothing super close. I am waiting to hear back from a glass and mirror place in Yonkers.

gordonrichards Might I suggest plexi instead of glass?
Easier to cut yourself, only need a saw or multiple scores with a knife.

furnfins Is there a Lowes near you? I know there's one in Brooklyn that has a person who cuts glass in eighter once a week or 2 days, on Ave.U. At least they did. What about any glazier/glass window installers?

Getting glass cut in the city?

Does anyone have a place they use for getting glass cut? It turns out that the Microdevario love jumping I have lost a couple already - and want to prevent any future losses.

I have a contact out to a place in Yonkers - but looking for other options. It is going to be a little more complicated then just a rectangle - as there have to be notches for the Lily pipes and the part of my driftwood that extends out of the tank.
