glass types: leaded or unleaded?

I need to go to the glass shop to get custom glass lids cut for my vivariums.

I know there are several types of glass. (leaded, soda lime, etc.)

Which type do I need to purchase? Obviously, the leaded one is not what I want.

I wouldn't worry about leaded glass for covers... as long as it isn't in continuous contact with water it shouldn't matter. I'd just get the cheapest, clearest glass.

Condensation forms on the glass lid, since it is a frog tank vivarium.
