Glass Thickness

I am looking to build my own 280 gallon fish tank. I am going to have it built into the wall. I was wondering if anyone knows the exact measurements for a 280 and also how thick is the glass?

Hey Adrien, I found this website that lists dimensions for a 280.

Glasscages.com - Online Order Form - 280 - 6 Wide Glass Aquarium

They are a pretty good company from what I've read and I'm sure if you email them and ask them what thickness glass they use, that they'll tell you.

Otherwise, I know nothing about glass thickness so sorry.

Best of luck!
