Diy wide aquarium question

Well I was reading plans for aquariums and I was thinking would glass get thicker the wider u get same as u get taller or will u simply have to properly brace it. Like 4 long x1.5 wide x2 tall aquarium build would be .12 mm thick glass so would a 4 long x 2.5 wide x 1 tall be .6 mm or thicker?
