That defeats the purpose of having a glass piece. Must be a canadian thing.

cheap budget .... ok i'll tell you for a box of cookies ... deal??

go to a house building site and see if there any plastic laying in the dumpster... grab a piece at least 4" bigger then the size you want
for the top ( exp. your fish tank is 10x10... you would want a piece 14x14" )
find some wood ... cut it into 4 pieces ...( if your top is 10x10) 2 pieces11"x1"( are smaller then 1" ) and 2 pieces 10"x1" (are smaller then 1")
now take the wood and make a frame out of it ... use duct tape for the corners ...
now put the plastic under the wood frame ... wrap the plastic over one side so you can staple the
wood into the plastic ... do this for all four sides ... now you have a plastic wood frame top...
it should fit over the top of your fish tank perfect ....
and just punch holes in the plastic for the fish pump hose and your set ....
( before using plastic top you should wash it down very very good if you got it from a job site ... and clean it again when the
lid is finish ...)
i hope that box of cookies are in the mail

My cat uses Sterilite bins (from WalMart, from $3.50 to about $10, depending on how big you want them) - they're much cheaper than Rubbermaid, and definitely cheaper than aquariums. He prefers the opaque ones because they're inconspicuous. He just cuts a hole in the lid and silicone glues a piece of plexiglas (from Home Depot - about $2) over it. Fill the bottom with wet perlite, and you're ready to rock & roll.

I bought my 10x10 aquarium from Petco for $9 and made a lid kind of like Bob said. For the plastic I bought a roll of painters plastic for $3 (used to protect carpets from paint) and a couple of peices of wood for $5. All in all pretty cheap.

I make some of my terrariums out of the plastic containers too but I still like making lids out of wood frame and plastic. It just seems to seel better and hold in the humidity. Only takes me about 10 miutes to make. I'm handy with a saw
Plus I can't always find plastic containers with clear lids, ahh to each his own.

And mine definitly looks cooler!!
