Looking to buy acrylic sheets that are free of scratches that are 3/8 inch thick or 1/2 inch thick. If anyone knows a good supplier of acrylic please let me know.

If you can't find it elsewhere, I have "a guy" who cuts glass or acrylic for a living... Any size, shape, dimensions -- would likely be cheaper & no wasted material rather than buying by the sheet and trying to get the cutting done yourself. He did all the glass work for my custom built 300+ gal. Goldie Haven (link in sig.). Just PM me and I can help you out if you run out of other options.

Assuming you mean that rubber "seam" that comes with most tops.... It's not needed... You can do what I've done for all my aquariums -- including the 300+ gal -- have two pieces of glass cut to your own custom measurements. Have one cut deeper than the other to go underneath your light in one piece and have a thinner one cut that can be opened and closed for feeding. Just an idea.
