Well I bought a new 20 long a week ago Planning to setup another nano,well the front glass cracked because of an accident.
Instead of buying a new tank I was thinking I would de rim it and buy a front pane of starphire glass for like 30 bucks take some or leave some off the price.

Does anyone know what thickness the glass is on a standard aqueon 20 gallon long aquarium is?

Probably around 1/4".

Good luck finding a piece that big for 30$.

It's no trouble to find one that cheap here,just got quoted for a 30x12 1/4 piece $32 with polished edges

My 20L's glass is .185"/4.70mm thick...which would be around 3/16" thick.
