I'm planning on building a 10' flat back hex and I came across this video and it got me wondering if there were any other unique builds out there?

I've seen several tanks where the bottom is plywood but with glass sides.

I also got pretty far along in making a triangular plywood tank for the corner of my living room. But without 90 degree angles the screws had much less wood to dig into to connect the corners. I eventually scrapped the idea for concerns on structural integrity. My humble recommendation would be to purchase a kreg jigg specialized to set screws in non-90 degree joints.

Yeah I was planning on using my pocket hole jig and running a spine down the angles for a little more grab. Really though I'm fiberglassing everything so that will be the main structural component. I'd absolutely love to do it so that the glass is uninterrupted like in that video but I don't have the guts to attempt to join mitered glass or acrylic.
