Can one use any Glass

Hi all

Are there any types of glass that can poisin fish? I know it sounds like a dumb question, but I can get glass panneling at a good price from Here.

I am just a bit worried about going through a huge mission, only to find out it was for nothing. I know this is probley the wrong place to ask this type of question but nobody can help me.

no glass is glass... it's all sealed..
never heard of "bad" glass...
Even if it's leaded... it won't hurt the fish...
can harm you though...
it may be too thin and break though....
That is a different story....

What were you planning to do and what thickness/type of glass did you have in mind? If you're going to build a 10g tank, I'd say you could use almost anything. If you're looking at a large tank, then you'll need to look at the thickness and type of glass you can use. You may also need some bracing at the top/center of the tank to reduce warpage due to water pressure.
