DIY Tank Suggestion!! (36*18*15 inch)

Postby bladenism » Tue Apr 12, 2016 6:28 pm

Hi guys
I am planning to make a glass aquarium size of 36*18*15 (l x b x h) with 12 mm glass.

Will I need bracing?
If yes then what type of bracing and sample please with the bracing size!!

I dont think you will.I built my tank of similar dimensions (36l 15b 18h) with 8mm glasses without braces and its fine.Even 10 mm glass is moee than good enough for your purpose,let alone 12mm

How old is that tank? Is it running now?

8mm is pretty good.i have my 36*18*18 set up running for 2 years.dont need to even go for 10mm.

rather invest the money for better accessories.
all the best.
