Big tank is constructed from 12mm glass @ 30kgs per sq metre. The tank max cap is 900 litres. It's is filled with 750 litre water at approx 1Kg per litre and there is approx 1/4 tonne of slate. Tank external dimensions are 1624x850x762mm (LxDxH) two sheets form the bottom layer giving 24mm thickness. It took 6 tubes of silicone to build. The braces are 12mm glass at 100mm deep with the various lengths. It runs normally with two Fluval FX5 filters rated at 2200 LPH

Electrical installation, all work carried out by me except the critical meter connections, this was carried out by a qualified person, my work was subject to testing.

That's how I did it the first time, works like a charm! Every now and then, like abracadabra, new tank!
I was a glazier at the time so work manufactured the panels and I kept on bringing more glass home.
I considered a Chinese water dragon in this room but I don't have the space.
Not sure if there are any reps that need high temp high humidity and most importantly SMALL enclosures. If I could though! Somewhere I've already stated, "I need more room"
The Chinese dragon would be good though, almost a perfect addition.
I'm not allowed snakes, anything that may want to kill me or the dog is a no!
