yeah i'll deffinately look into ply wood and see if that would be the way to go i know wood won't shater if one of the kids throw a toy and acidently hit it of course if i make a stone casing for it it makes it all that much stronger i'm gonna do some serious researchbefore i go that way

I believe that the plywod is used for the three sides and the bottom. The wood is water sealed and a front glass or acrylic is caulked and used for viewing.

hmm, I don't know. I don't try to heat my pool to 80 deg all year, nor do I try to supply enough light to grow corals in it. How many gph would you need in a tank that size too?
