I'm thinking about a tank years
into the future, but I currently can't find a place that would sell me the type and size that I want since I'm going for something a little weird. Costume tanks are crazy expensive so I'd thought I'd build instead. So!
If I wanted to build a tank 3x3 ft with either 1.5 ft or 2ft height, would it need reinforcements like bracing? What else?
From thickness calculators I've looked at it seems .25in or 6mm works, but if it's not please comment!
Ultimately I'm attempting to make a bigger version of table tanks that I've seen. A weird see-through pond thing. I want a lot of surface area because my dream is to have a load of cory cats and a pleco in it. I would be able to see it from the top while on the couch and from the sides while lying on the carpet. So the whole thing would be glass or mostly, if that's possible?
