Hi. Anyone know what this stuff is called? The grooved bit clips onto the top edge of the tank and the bit that protrudes out at a right angle supports a glass sheet. Am looking for more of this.

do a Google search for coverglass support strips.

eBay has them

The 6mm part is how thick the glass is that the strips are designed for. If the tank has thicker glass (8-10mm), you will need to find support strips for 8-10mm thick glass. Likewise if the glass is thinner, you will need smaller support strips.

That’s exactly what I’m looking for and I had actually come across that listing in my search. But can’t find similar in UK…well, I have found it wholesale but min order is way too much. I’ll keep looking.

Those look the same as on my shrimp tank. I know it's an Aqua One tank as it had an Aqua One label on it, but it was sold as just the basic tank - walls, cover glass and those strips. Unfortunately it was unboxed so I don't know the name of the model. Looking at their tanks it may be an Aqua Nano without the built in filter section. But looking for spares, they now only sell the "new style" glass supports where the support fits onto the cover glass with a flange that sits on the tank walls rather than the kind we have which sits over the edge of the tank with a flange for the cover glass to sit on :(

Not even eBay sells them. All they have are those plastic ones about 5 cm long and metal ones.
