I did this attention sumphead because I read your sticky about making an acrylic tank, and you obviously know what you are talking about. However anyone can respond if they know!
I am building a tank that is custom to fit inside an old tv.
It's only going to be about 2 gallons from what I can tell (Largest piece is 9-3/8" x 8-1/4". So it's nothing big.
I can get the glass cut for about $15 from what I've seen, but I'm considering maybe building it out of acrylic. I went to Lowe's today and they were selling something... although I can't say exactly what it was. Which is where I'm hoping for some help. It said acrylic, but said it is easily cut by scoring it 3x's with their little acrylic cutting tool. It seemed very flimsy to me (I could easily wobble it like sheet metal) and it had blue plastic as a covering. Any idea what is was, or if I could use it?
Sorry but I don't know the brand, size, or anything about it at all. I had pretty much ignored it since I assumed it was too flimsy for my use, but your post said that for smaller tanks sometimes the cheaper stuff is ok.
Is the cheap stuff normally thin enough to wobble? It was located right next to their glass cutting machine. They had it in all different pre-cut sizes, but it all seemed to be the same thickness.
Hopefully someone can help me with this, sorry to be so vague!
