I am planning to build a glass aquarium( for freshwater).
the size of the aquarium will be L:120cms, W:40cms, H:50cms, capacity:240 liters. how much must be the glass thickness 8mm or 9mm.
can anyone advice me about the size of the tank. are the dimensions okay or do I have to vary the dimensions. can you advise if the tank will look good in these dimensions. do i have to put a side brace in the tank also.
any advice on the silicon to be used. is it required to be of some particular strength and is it a food grade silicon.
Can i have the edges of the glass polished, if so will the silicon hold it.
