So roughly a 75gal tank. I would just use glass panels for that, the acrylic needs to be around 3/8-1/2" thick but you can use .35" glass according to https://www.thesprucepets.com/saltwa...agrams-4122023

This article someone built a 50gal tank and used .375" Acrylic.

This is another article that suggests 3/8"
