Need DIY Calculator link

Searched google and several forums, and can't find the calculator that tells you the thickness and the exact size pieces of glass for the tank you want to build.

Say I want a 24"l x 18"h x 18"d tank...what thickness glass would I use 1/4" glass? And then I would cut the sides 17.5"d x 18"h, the front and back would be 24"l x 18"d and the bottom would be 23.5"l x 17.5"d, correct?

Also, any idea on glass prices? Ball park estimates are fine. I'm in a hurry and can't make phone calls right now.

Thanks guys.

Thats the one I was looking for. Now I just need to call a glazier.

Getting a nice refund this season, so I'm hoping to talk the wife into letting me splurge a bit
