sarahspins Check locally for a plastics supplier... they are usually cheaper than HD and will also cut to size.

horsedude I like Dark Cobra's bit at the bottem (i grow SOS (staghorn on Seroids)) i have had a 1 year battle with staghorn but i got rid of it! yey

DarkCobra www.eplastics.com also sells, cuts to size, and edge finishes in a variety of ways. Haven't used them for this, or compared prices against TAP Plastics; it's just another option I know about.

My local Home Depot does carry 1/4" acrylic, but will NOT cut this thickness for you, only the thinner stuff.

I suppose 1/4" would probably do it over that length since it'll have baffles welded in.

where to purchase acrylic sheets

Ok, I know this has been asked before. I did a search and out of the 21 results for this section of the site I didn't see an appropriate thread.

I'm looking to build my own sump with acrylic and probably need 2 or 3 4' sheets.
