DIY Glass Top 4 A De-Rimmed 20L

Just as the title suggests, I am looking to make a glass top for my 20L. I will have the piece of glass cut at my local hardware store.

Now, this 20L has been de-rimmed so I am going to need some type of hangers for the piece of glass. For those of you who might not know what I mean by hanger. Here is an example of the plastic hanger I am tanking about.

These came with my Fluval EBI:

This should be cool. Can you get the hangers from Eheim?

If you're not able to find a clip like you show, you could silicone a small piece of glass in the corners that would hold a glass top in. Put it in deep enough to allow your glass top to sit flush and it would be minimal and functional.
