I have plans to make a two-piece upside down aquarium that holds approximately 4 gallons.
Bottom tank measures about 10x10x6.5 (LxWxH) and the flipped tank will measure about 6x6x13 (neither tank will have braces/rims or whathaveyou, just silicone).
My only conundrum is deciding how thick the glass should be. I've already been to a couple of aquarium glass calculator sites and they say it should be a quarter of an inch thick, however my store bought 10 gal
tank has a thickness of about an eighth of an inch (has a rim on top and bottom). Should I really use 0.25" thickness or would it be safe to go a little thinner?
Will be more than happy to post my progress when I finalize the plans.
