  15. So as the title asks- looking for advice on pros and cons of lids if I have a canopy. 6x2x2 looking to house a few Americans.

And yes I've thought about Brissie rain being toxic but hasn't seemed to harm my discus so far. Also what do folks think about acrylic vs glass lids. Just thinking DIY with a jigsaw cutting acrylic would be safer than trying to cut glass Something like this : Lexan Polycarbonate A3 Size 420 x 297 x 4.5mm Clear Sheet. Seems cheap enough and if it is meant for skylights would think it would stand up as a lid and not bend? Thanks guys.
