I always use 1/4" Plexiglass for my baffles, as they are a lot less likely to shatter and are easier to cut (like on a table saw). Most lumberyards and hardware stores will cut it to size for you.
Take a read of this article: Understanding Sumps
. One of our members wrote it and it is very thorough. Good information.
