    Hi guys

    I know there have been a few threads regarding this, but there doesn't seem to be a definite answer. I would like to build my own tank, but how feasible is this? Dimensions would be 100cm x 50cm. Depth is still something I'm looking into. What would you guys suggest?? Also, I remember a thread asking about using plate glass, but can't find this again. What type of glass is recommended? I'll be honest, I'm more handy working on a car engine than anything around the house, but I'd like to give this a shot.

    Yeah, this is pretty much what I have been seeing :p

    So in that case, what height should I be looking at, with the other measurements above?

    i would get a tank builder to do the job,100*50*50 sounds good.
    or even better 100*100*60H 10 mm glass ;)

    i like the idea of the cube but rather go for 100X80X60 as you cant reach the back of the tank otherwise

    I would love the 100*100, but don't have the space :-(

    Can you recommend anyone? I'm in the Randburg area
