Since I started this thread I thought I would post an update as to what I have done.
I pulled the glass out of storage and found the stamp in the corner that says it has been tempered.
I called around to a few glass shops I deal with and priced glass for building several different sizes of aquariums. What I really wanted was a 90 gallon about 24" deep. Best price on glass $301 Had an offer for 1/4" salvage glass all I want for $60. Much better but I didn't buy it.
I must say that I really enjoy building things myself, sometimes more than the rest of the particular hobby. After browsing a fairly close by LFS
with my Girlfriend on Saturday I found a deal. They had a 80 gallon Bowfront all glass aquarium and I fell in love. The bowfront is Awesome! I made a deal $200 for the aquarium, $70 for a Seaclone protein skimmer, a Magdrive 9.5 for $65. All I had to do is promise to buy more from them. No problem, out of the four LFS
I have visited this was the only one worth dealing with. Besides the guy that helped us gave us ten gallons of water out of their ro
system for our turtle tank including the two jugs!
SO Monday I moved the tank to a roller cart in my shop (I own a custom cabinet and millwork business) and the stand and canopy construction begins! I'll post pics when I'm done. It's going to be cool! I'm going to place the tank in my bedroom on a wall at the foot of my bed. All my furniture in the bedroom is black or bamboo. The stand and canopy will be Black with some bamboo panels and I might through some Jatoba in there somewhere since I have alot of it laying around right now ( I am building a curved staircase out of it right now).
My next step will be a few more questions coming in new threads. Thanks for all the help, this place rocks!
