Using a plexiglass sheet with a fish tank....

Anybody have an idea if ants can push "open" an unsecured sheet of 1/8" piece of plexiglass? I thought to cover a 10-20 gallon aquarium with a plexiglass "lid". If they could, what about a 1/4 or 1/2" piece? Thanks!

No I don't think they can. The key would be to make sure that it is a very smooth fit
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
