Thanks Ben!

Okay, I've been back and forth and all around on how I'm going to seal this thing.:S I started some more research on rubberizeit after Rock's suggestion. It seems they've got an easy solution for sealing the window and detail it on their website. This was my main concern here but seems now this won't be a problem. So since this stuff is so easy to get and seems to have a high rate of success I'm goin with it. Plus any repairs would be very simple with this stuff. Failures with epoxy and fiberglass can be difficult to say the least to repair. So anyways Rubberizeit it is! Thanks Rock! LOL

Sweet...I might build a plywood tank in the garage, and tell the wifey that I'm learning how to frame and do woodworking! If I can finagle it, she won't know that it is a tank until there is fish!

:lol:
