How to make a tank?

I made this terrarium for a wedding gift for a friend, if I build a tank like this(without the hole in front) for fish or shrimp will the 50/50 (50% lead and 50% ten) solder be a problem? It will be sealed with silicone inside but you never know.

it will be fine as long as ALL the lead/ten is covered with silicone

Thanks, making the tank is as much fun as putting stuff in it.

In all honesty, what are the chances of you being able to make one shaped like a chicken?

How big a chicken?

Aquarium or terrarium?
And will it need feathers?

Feathers will be the easy part. Supporting a tank of water on lead legs and feet is what I want to hear about. ;-)

If it could be done, you would be some sort of craftsman god.

As big as a large Cochin rooster would look exquisite. That's roughy the size of a small dog.

Don't know how many gallons one is though.

The lead is okay for aquarium, use last time i checked. Many people use lead weights to hold down plants

Thanks for the help with the lead, and on the chicken why not a silky rooster? There much cuter.
