I can't really do rimless open top because of my cat, but cutting it down to a shorter size might be an option. Would it be worth it to get a tempered pane at a glass shop to cut the height in half and make two 48x12x10 tanks? I've always thought it would be cool to do a whitewater stream with hillstream loaches or something similar.

What's the best lid option for a rimless tank? I've only ever seen rimless tanks with lids in much smaller sizes.

I have MTS
