    Need help with regards to a possible upgrade of my tank:

    I would like to go 0.7mx0.7mx0.6m (LxWxH) which is 340L
    0.6x0.6x0.4m for the sump (144L)

    This should with displacement and the fact that the tank will not be 100% full, and that the sump will probably be around 60% full should put me at about 400L

    How much would a tank this size cost me? Was also told to look into opti white glass???

    yo, you should be able to build it with 6mm (braced)...

    phone rene turck for a quote, they're really awesome! perhaps you can get the normal glass cheaper from builders in rivonia... apparently they're cheap with their glass...
