1/2" worked for me for 48" deep. I used tempered glass for my project. If you are in doubt see if you can get 5/8"
Mine is roughly 1080 gallons. 11'2" long, 4' tall, about 3' front to back. (inside) The openning on the front is 4' tall by 100" long. All I did was put a brace at center for extra support. Take a look at my thread (1000+ gallon peacock hap) and take a look.Aalelan said:How big was your tank and what size was the glass window.. And Thanks for your input! Now I can say at least someone has done 48" with 1/2" Tempered..98dak83cam said:1/2" worked for me for 48" deep. I used tempered glass for my project. If you are in doubt see if you can get 5/8"
I agree. and that is what I was expecting.. I did get and inside deal on 1/2 tempered but I really want to stay away from the shatter factor of that. I have a 72" bed truck I could use to pickup glass but I have no idea how to brace/transport such large sheets..Aalelan said:
