DIY polycarbonate lids

Anyone had any problems with polycarbonate lids sagging on a 4ft tank? obviously two 2ft lids, but I've been told that they could end up sagging and looking bad. Maybe even down to the waterline. Almost thinking I should just get the cheap aqueon glass lids instead

I have plexiglass lids that are re-enforced with ribs siliconed on the water side. It work but I would use much thicker material and thinner ribs next time.

Mine is a 14 inch cube tank, I can't see 24x24 unsupported one side working.

Yeah, but that would end up being more expensive, I'm leaning toward DIY because its like a fraction of the price usually. But when it comes to lids, its not looking like the case
