    If there is a Laird plastics in your area that is your best bet. They carry the real Plexiglas G. If your building a tank or a sump, that is what you want to use. There is a great thread on here about working with acrylic.

    eplastics.com is my go to, they are the only ones who carry the particular blue fluorescent acrylic I need. Awesome selection and decent prices

    E&T Plastics is about the closest you'll get to a national chain. Their prices are great, they'll cut it for you and they're really helpful.
