What size is the glass. Is my first question but I will say you will be fine as it is only 24 inch tall and you will habe a frame around itI know this is an old thread, but looks like some actions a few months back, so here goes my question....
I'm in the middle of building a plywood tank, outside dimensions are 72" L x 48" W x 24" H. was going to use 3/4 plywood. Stand is already built with those dimensions.
I have a 3/8 piece of tempered glass that I got for free off of CL. I was planning to use it as my viewing panel, but am nervous without getting confirmation from more experienced tank builders. Any thoughts on If I should upgrade the glass or if it should be fine? According to the calculator, the height is good, but my cause for concern is because the tank is so deep. Thoughts?
Thanks in advance
Forgot to add.... The glass is 58 1/2" by 20 1/2" and 3/8" thick. Yes will have a frame around it and will also be braced on top.What size is the glass. Is my first question but I will say you will be fine as it is only 24 inch tall and you will habe a frame around it
Assuming those are inches and assuming you meant 144 long, you will need 47mm of plate glass. That's a bit over 1.75" and will be extremely expensive (not just due to thickness but due to the length), assuming you can find anyone who can actually make the glass and who is willing to ship it.How thick of glass do need for a fish tank 144 high 36 wide and 60 high Please help !!!! My measurements are all in inches
