Glass for DIY tank
I am planning to start a new tank but the dimensions are very custom and I plan to build it myself. I intend to make a longish tank - 60x14x14 inches or something like that, and I am wondering where you DIY tank builders buy the glass. I am not looking for very high quality, iron free glass, etc. Just the usual plate glass. I am planning on going with 1/4 inch thick glass with may be a couple or so of top cross braces near the middle.
I have made many large tanks myself but it was many years ago in India and I have never built one here in the U.S and need your inputs mainly on sourcing and things like do you get it cut or do you cut it yourself? Do you get the edges polished or just smooth grind it yourself, etc.?
