Glass Thickness in Plywood build

can anyone confirm or deny the appropriatness of my dimensions and glass requirements.

Tank is made of 3/4 plywood, 8L x 3H x 14"D. Going to have a 2" boarder on the font pannel with the glass being 3/8" thick?

The tank dimensions will not change, but I can change my glass order by Monday 930am. Any advice, comments???
