    Hi Guys

    I managed to get my hands on some big sheets of glass.:thumbup::thumbup:

    The 3 sheets are about 1,9 x 0.85 meters. 4mm thick

    No markings on this glass so i have no clue what kind of glass it is or if it could be used for tanks?

    Anyone here able to point me in the right direction here?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately at 4mm thickness your stuck with very limited sump options! Or small breeding tanks maybe??

    4mm is way to thin. Even for a sump its easily cracked when bumped.

    I am interested in the glass if you don't need it and decide to sell it.
