I recently walked in to my herp room to find my 55 gallon tank shattered from one side but still in tack so I broke it all off can somebody give me a cheap way to replace the glass on the 48" by 21" inch side with something that's not as much as buying a new tank and it does not have to retain water here's some pics not the best quality cause its late but just so you get the idea.

take a look at outwater plastics industries inc. (faux stone panels) have not tried these yet , but they look like an interesting product (background and side all at once)

I dont know if you have a Lowe's around you but they sell glass and will cut it for you. I have looked at getting some to make my own caging but have yet to buy any. They are pretty reasonably priced too.

If you're still looking for glass, don't make fun, but the local Hobby Lobby (art/craft store) does a bang up job. The Home Depot guys said they would only do rough cuts, and wouldn't get closer than an 1/8th of an inch. Needless to say that can be really annoying if you're trying to get something to fit. Anyway, the craft folks treated me well.
