Hi guys,

After being out of the fish keeping hobby for a couple of years I'm itching to get back into to it.similar to another post in this section I want to put a tank between two rooms,well a room and a hallway.

I have 7-8 feet of open space along the hallway wall so I was hoping to get a 4 foot tank into it. 120x60x40 cm was what I was hoping for. It will be fresh water planted community tank with a sump.

At the moment I work for a company that deal with a lot of glass so I think I'll try my hand at tank construction. Does anyone have any info on glass thickness and sump size that would be required for a project like this,all other advice or comments would be much appreciated.

This will be a long term project but I plan on taking a lot of pictures .

Cheers Stuart.

Hello again Stuart,
There's quite a lot of information in the Forum's 'Articles' section which may be of help to you.
Here, also, is the 'blog' which was started (and completed) by Darkslice on his tank build project:

You might want to look at Bohrio's excellent thread which - although Marine intended - does refer to many of your project questions too:
