1/8 inch glass

Have a buch of pieces of 1/8 glass and was thinking of building some sort of tank has anyone built anything using this size glass. I plan on using some of it to make glass tops for one of my 55's and my 10. Any ideas of what else I can do with this glass would be helpful. I have the tools to cut it with.

I have a 10 gallon built from 1/8" glass, but I think it is too thin. It seems very fragile, especially if it were an untrimmed tank.
