Re: Making an aquarium
I've made quite a few close to that size from single strength glass. my
favorite size is
is 11 w x 10 h x 13 front to back about 6.2 gallons and it holds up
nicely. I use clear plastic angle to form a frame. the plastic angle is
the kind they use to protect corners on walls or paneling. If you want
to make more than one or two it is best to make a fixture or jig so that
all the glass is cut exactly the same size for better corners and greater
I once made a special tank for breeding bettas that was 5 w x 7 tall by
30 inches long and the sides bowed so badly when you filled it that I cut
another piece to tie the front to the back to prevent it from breaking.
It was single strength and now 4 years old and holding it's own.
