    Oceanic glass cover

    Is the Oceanic glass cover made of tempered glass? I lost the information insert that came with the cover years ago.

    I just bought a 75g Oceanic tank setup recently. Only the bottom of the tank is tempered.

    Thanks Flame*Angel! I'm going to get the cover 'trimmed' to accommodate my hang-on skimmer and that was one of the questions that the shop asked me. Of course, I had *no* idea ....

    Hmmm, you may have a different cover than I do. Mine has glass pieces that kind of hinge in the middle. In the back there is a plastic "flap" that I can just clip for hang-on gear. Even still I can't imagine any kind of glass covers being made with tempered glass.

    It sounds like the same style. The main glass is matte, right?

    Not sure what you mean by matte. It's clear ordinary glass with brown plastic pieces for the hinges and back.

    Probably a different design, then. Anyway, the glass shop has determined that it isn't tempered glass, so on with the cutting!
