How thick does glass for a 125 have to be.

Ok thanks I figured it needed to be. @ least 3/8. I wanted to make sure a tank I'm gonna get is thick enough. I have a 120 I wanted to rep frame and reseal but its only 3/16 so I won't risk that one.

glass thickness depends on the depth of the tank.......anything 24 inches or less in depth 3/8th glass is fine but if your going over 24 then you should increase the thickness to 1/2 inch...... ;)

Warning..I will offend you at some point!!!


my goal is simple a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all

Thanks all no worries though I found a 125 with 1/2 glass for $100 picking it up Saturday.
