Question help with 195 gallon plywood tank design

I'm attempting to design a a plywood aquarium 30"x30"x50" for some goldfish some giant danios and a common pleco, and I'm not sure how thick the plywood should be. I was thinking 1.5 inches on the bottom, as per youtube's uarujoey's huge ray aquarium with a plywood bottom, but I don't know how thick the sides should be. 1.5 inches seems like overkill. Also, anyone know some cheap plate glass suppliers for the window? I need 1/2 in or 13 cm glass in the general dimensions of 30"x50"

30 gallon: 2 Goldfish
20 gallon: 1 Golden Algae eater, 4 zebra Danios
Use: Aqueon QuietFlow filters, large gravel, generic air pump. Aqueon hood lights on both. Test water every 1-2 weeks with API Master Test Kit
