Glass and bracing requirements

Hi All,

I have owned several aquariums over the years but this will be my first attempt at a tank build.
I can find plenty of data on minimum glass thickness and bracing details for rectangular tanks but nothing on pentagon / hexagon tanks.
Can anyone assist with recommended glass thickness for the aquarium in the attached drawing?
Tank will be approx 290 litres / 77 gallons
Bracing is drawn at 50mm wide.
