Question Where to get cut starphire glass sheet

I'm looking to build my own aquarium and was trying to find places that sell custom cut sizes of starphire. So far I found glasscages.com. I was hoping to find something in California.

Can't you just look up custom cut low iron glass in San Luis Obispo? Surely someone provides custom cuts there.

Asking for low iron glass usually works..

Quote:
Low-iron glass is sold under various brand names. Guardian Industries calls it "Ultrawhite".[6] Pilkington calls it "Optiwhite".[7] PPG Industries calls it "Starphire".[8] Other brand names include "Starlite", "Krystal Klear", "Diamant" and "Eurowhite".
