I appreciate the reply but smith was right. Theres quite a bit I should have taken into consideration before addressing these questions. Im new at this so forgive my lack of knowledge.

I did play around with that aquarium calculator. Problem is its complicated. I confess I kinda suck with volumetric math and Im bad at using complex calculators.. But can anybody tell me how thick the plexiglass has to be for these dimensions...,

L - 8 ft
W - 5 ft
H - 5 ft

Well, right around those dimensions. I want to keep this as feasible as possible without going bankrupt. At least for a first project. Seems the more questions I ask and the more I research it the better idea I get about where Im supposed to be (realistically and financially). So Im definitely not aiming for the moon this time.
And thank you. As always any replies are much appreciated.
