Building new tank

I just bought 16 sheets of glass they are 1 meter x 1meter sheets they are 10mm thick I want to build a tank that is a 3ft cube so around 190 gallons would it be possible to do? And biggest question of all how do I cut the glass?

I think 10mm is a bit to small for a 190g cube but it might work. If you have a glass or mirror shop they can cut them for you just measure them yourself and they will cut them. Otherwise its gonna take a year using a glass cutter at your house. I believe a 125g uses 1/2" glass and 10mm is just under 3/8" so id be cautious

I think 10mm is a bit weak for that much water.. Atleast 1/2", I agree with j.
