I'd be worried about both leakage from the liner and the weight of the tank. 8 ft by 3 ft. and to be strong enough to support all the weight of the water, sand, rocks, etc. will need to be quite thick I'd imagine, and quite heavy... I would custom build a glass tank using steel supports or something before I went and used concrete, but that's just my opinion.
