plywood aquarium glass help

so I am planning on building 6x2x3 plywood aquarium in the beginning of next year so just now I'm trying to choose all the parts that I'm going to use so far the only thing I'm struggling to get hold of is the glass i found 8mm toughened glass shower panel but I'm not sure if it will be ideal for the dimensions I want. any advice would be appreciated

There are lots of great links and maybe even a thread or two here on tanks like you speak.
I would research carefully...8 mm glass ....
Hope this helps;

Hey smith90, I just saw your post today, 1/31/17. This sounds like a really cool build. I've wanted to try this for a while but haven't had the time yet. If you search " plywood aquarium build" on google you will find a lot of info that may help. Post some pics on here when it's done. Good luck.
