  1. Default diy plywood tank questions

    0 Not allowed!
    i have been doing a lot of research and i am going to build a 6ft x 2ft x 25ft. tank. From what i have found out i need a front viewing window for 3\4 inch thick. From what i found out is one of the main factors in glass thickness is the unsupported area. So my question is if i put a center brace could i use thinner glass for the front?

    it's going to depend on the height of the tank and the size of the window

    25'??? Wow, unless your doing allot of segments? I wouldn't go any thinner than 3/4". That's just my 2 cents... :)

    Type into Google "How to build a plywood tank" and there's lots of articles on how to build one. You've probably already done that but it's interesting as heck.
