Hi everyone, I know this question has been asked so many times, however i feel that i need to ask the question myself. Im planning to build a plywood tank however i am unsure on the glass thickness. The tank will have the dimensions: 6x3x3, but the water level will be about 6 inches of the top and ill leave around 6 inches on either side to install the glass. what glass thickness would you guys recommend?

I think it’s around 400 gallons. I’ve seem people use 15mm glass on tanks this size so would that be ok?

I agree on minimum 15mm. A friend of mine has a 10000L plywoodtank with the glass being 300x120cm and using 15mm hardened glass. Im in the planning stage myself of building a huge plywood tank and planning to use two windows 200x120 15mm
