Most tanks that are 75cm high in the uk are made with 15mm glass, also with the length and width your talking about they come with a double base to try and stop any twisting. The base on my tank has a 10mm sheet cut to the outside dimensions and another 10mm siliconed to it cut to inside dimensions.

I think you're gonna want at least 15mm. Not sure exactly what 0.8 m is in inches but if its over 30 inches height you may even need 19mm on the long panels.
