I need some help to understand

A guy in the paper is selling fish tanks, now the part I don't understand is he says they have 3 sides made out of wood. Wouldn't this leak? Or do they have glass inside and wood on the outside? My brain just can't reconcile this having wood on 3 sides without glass.

it'll be sealed ply..
not bad, i prefer all glass.
they will be heavier then glass due to the sealing of the wood.
bout 20 years ago it was the in thing apparently.

If they are a good price and good condition, go for it...wood tanks are excellent...nice and lightweight, too.
