10mm glass.. dont be silly Calvin, serous, you are messing with a LOT of water and tons of pressure, you have had big tanks and you know what you are doing.. 12mm min on that size please..

My tank is 2250 x 700 x 700 and I know I cannot get away with 10mm, even with bracing.. you risk much young luke !
