250G DIY Project (Newbie)
I am a newby but playing with the idea of building a 250G tank. I know I could start small and purchase one, but I like having projects to play with. With that said I am looking for some guidance or things I might need to think about when building this tank?
I am looking to build with the dimensions (LxWxH): 1500mm x 400mm x 1750mm. Attached is a quick sketchup of the idea.
This idea is for a "slimmer" tank along a wall, that has enough room for a stand should I need one.
I believe I would be using Glass over Acrylic, but I am unsure as to which kind of glass, or how thick it would need to be for such a big tank. I read online a margin of safety around 3x?
Would the base need to be thicker than the walls of the tank too?
As for holes and a base unit, I am unsure how all of the systems will work yet but guidance on that is a big help!
Hopefully, Once completed I will be able to upload it here!
