Plywood tank sealing.

Anyone on here make a plywood. I'm looking for ideas on the cheapest material to coat the inside. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Quite a while back, my company built a plywood tank/vat for our saltwater invertebrate section. It was basically plywood, stainless steel nails and braces and fiberglass. It had a glass window. The only thing I will tell you is that we needed to wash the tank down with acetone after we had tested it because the inverts died in the unwashed tank. This was done simply by wetting down a cloth with acetone and wiping the entire tank down. No real problems after doing that.
Just something to consider.

Hope this helps...
