They just replied to my e-mail. He didn't say how many he has but he did say they still have them. No, I just have to figure out how many to get. Wish I had some experienced tank builder chiming in here. Not that I don't trust you guys or anything but...... LOL

Well, I just talked to the guy. He has 180 of these sheets. Thats the good news. The bad news is they are milk white not clear. Bummer. Oh well, still good for a sump.

acrylic doesnt have to be thicker, but it does need bracing for teh bigger tanks. I think glass is pretty easy to deal with, as long as you have a decent cutter.

i think thats why ive had such a hard time cutting all my glass and any time ive touched it its broken. thats what i get for using a harbor freight glass cutter i guess.
