At Lowe's. You should be able to find it at any home improvement store in the lighting section. It's sold as a 'light diffuser'. Paid about $7 for a huge piece of it.

Exciting news!!

Make sure your house is on slab, or your floor has some serious supports.
It would be around 4,400 lbs, or about 2.2 tons just in water weight!

I have a 10 lb tank and it's typically at least 3 months between fills on the 90g i used to have (~3-4 bps). The best I ever got was close to six months.
Good luck!
