    That's a pretty good price, considering I paid half of that for my 12mm green glass 1000L tank.

    Hell man, that one tyre on your Porshe.
    Looking forward to your build !

    Sorry but arnt you wasting a bit of money going for 24mm IMO this is over-engineering?

    You might get similar strength out of a single 19mm but without the drawbacks/risks of laminated glass.
