1000 gallon tank would be 4.5 tons with a stand filters ect. Wow you could have a bunch of big fish in there....maybe even go fishing in the tank. :blink:

You dont need to perform FEA on a simple screen the material specs will tell you how much load you can put into it. A quick handlcalc would more accurate than useing this software.

Its the corner joints where your weakpoints will be not the main sheets; use of FEA would be useful in this isntance. It looks like your useing the Solidworks FEA bolt-on. I would back this info up with a secound more reliable software; If your at uni somewhere you should be able to get a hold of ABAQUS.

If not use ANSYS, which easy enough to download, failing that MatLab would do fine. Might be worth checking the frame you would need for a stand aswel.

And Kudos for the project effort, where are you getting glass formed to that size?
