Interesting idea...I've built a couple tanks, that glass looks frighteningly thin for 53.5 gallons. But then I use glass way thicker than necessary just for my own peace of mind. Look forward to seeing he progress though!
hi! all my home-built tanks are made with resistant tempered glass. also i use more sealant than on regular framed tanks. it holds!
And yes! the bottom is made of 2 panels!
