    Ottawa glass shop?

    Can anyone recommend a good shop in downtown Ottawa that cuts glass? I'd like to size down my aquarium's glass cover to compensate for the hang-on skimmer's return flow.

    (At least, I think it is made out of glass ... it's one of those 'special' Oceanic cover thingies.)

    Regards,

    Nighty

    You can try M & T Glass or Centennial Glass on Industrial Ave. Both places have been around for a while and should be able to cut it for you.

    thats the one with the matte finish on one side ?? If so it can be cut easy. Do it your self if you like. Just buy a hand held glass cutter and the hardware store and score the non mated side when you want to cut it and snap it off over a piece of dowel. I would make a diagonal cut at one of the back corners so you don't have the entire length opened up just for that return.

    Thanks for the tip Salty Dog, but I'm not at all mechanically inclined! I'll try one of the shops on Industrial Road ... it's not that far from where I work.
