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?

There is a thread on RC about a tank that was built for hospital. I don't remember how big it is off hand but I believe the acrylic used was 2" thick.
After you price out the sheets of acrylic you may change your mind. I belive those sized panels have to be custom made and that is expensive.
Contact Envision (they are out in the north west somewhere) the build tanks for aquariums and I believe they build pretty much all the aquariums for Jellyfish exhibits around the world. If anyone can answer you questions they could.
