Unless you are getting your plexi pre-cut from the shop, i would recommend sticking with the PVC pipe. Im cutting my own plexi now and its extremely frustrating. I have tons of pieces of useless plexi that, for some strange reason, did not break correctly, leaving curved jagged edges that need to be sanded down just right or it wouldn't bond with the next piece and then you gotta sand it more until its straight but if you sand one end a little too much its uneven... etc. Not to be a downer, but plexi is seriously annoying to work with. Great results, but very frustrating...
Also for your project, i think the fish might be less inclined to get in because there no circulation. The other birdge link that was posted has water running through it, yours, since its in the same tank, does not actively change out the water trapped in it, so it might seem like a deadzone for your fish and make them less inclined to venture into it.
