DIY Aquarium Questions


I am considering building a DIY Aquarium and I have some questions that I just can not seem to resolve.

1) What type of glass (plain, tempered, anealed) I know that some types of glass are stronger than plain glass however I also know that some types of glass can shatter rather easily. (there was this time I shot out the back of my grandfathers truck with a slingshot and a BB....)

2) Would a UV curing epoxy with an aquarium safe silicone seal overlay be stronger/better than using silicone alone?

Any help you can provide would be most welcome. I already have the GARP site bookmarked.
