Acrylic Tank building need help

I wanted to know more about acrylic tank building. Is there any websites or books I could find to do some research on this topic? I got an opportunity to use a large oven and other tools to make an acrylic tank. I am thinking of either doing a weldon-the-sides type tank or, if there is a way to do this, make the tank using a single piece, making leaks impossible unless there was a crack. How do regular manufacturers do it? I just want to see all the options on acrylic tank building before I try to make a tank for myself. Thanks everyone!

I had a bunch of links because I was interested in doing it before but I can't find them all. Here's one that may help.
