I'm probably going to get a tank from, but the shipping for a terrarium is 1/4 of an aquarium. The terrarium comes disassembled, and it doesn't have to hold alot of water. Could I seal it good enough and what would I need? If I have to I'll buy the aquarium, but it would be nice to save $100. Thanks.

for two inches of water, I'm sure you'd have no problem Just be sure not to miss anything with the sealant

I'm going to go with the unassembled terrarium and just use the acrylic cement. It seems like that's the way to go anyway from what I see some guys building thier own tanks.

I checked into the prices of the acrylic sheets, and thier just as much or more as the setup from Glasscages, but the Glasscages setup comes with the box frame. A 90gal tank is gonna be a good start, huh?
