Default Tank Safety Calculator
The safety value index should be minimum 2.

Calculate Aquarium Glass Thickness | Aquarium Tools


I found this very usefull tool after I was worried regarding the thickness of my tank. It rated 4 so very safe. (250L 4 foot tank of 8mm glass , 122 x45 x45)

Just a quick heads up. This calculator takes into account heavy bracing and standard glass. If you use starfire glass or rimless design you need to increase your glass thickness.

There are more usefull ones:

Aquarium Glass Thickness Calculator

I like the table of that site:



The value under the MM is the safety index. 2 is the minimum 4 and above is "very safe".
