Where to buy glass baffles?

Where can you buy glass baffles to build a sump? I'm going to make a 20 gallon long sump for a 40 gallon breeder and want to keep the costs low but need precise cuts.

If you're on the East side of NYC you can try the Ace Hardware on 1st ave and 76th street. They will cut glass to order for you right there and it's fairly cheap.
A person who smiles in the face of adversity probably has a scapegoat.

Light travels faster than sound, this is why some people appear bright before they speak.

Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful.

It is far easier to fool people than to show them that they've been fooled.

many hardware stores and any glazier can do it. Also the cuts dont have to be so precise. You want like an 1/8" on each side for the silicone
