My diy corner tank

This is my 46 gallon corner tank I built. I am going to build a stand for it sometime next week. And the other pic is of a 26 gallon tank and stand that I built about a month ago. I have built 6 tanks in the last month out of scrap glass I have reclaimed from my job as a construction worker.

Nice corner tank I want to build my own one day. If I used acrylic, is there a type of acrylic that I have to buy.

I used glass out of patio doors. From what I have read about acrylic you acrylite. My next build will be a six foot tank using 3/8 glass.

I hope I can use acrylic. Mainly because if it cracks it won't shatter the way glass does. It will just be one crack.

Nice tank, you need to be doing custom tank builds for a side gig. You definitely have a gift for it.
