Looks fine to me, like a 50 gallon breeder - remember that you have to measure inside dimensions for mass and all the standard tanks are rounded numbers and the older tanks had different dimensions. As long as it is at least 1/4 to 3/8 glass and the silicon is sealed well you shouldn't have any problems

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

Sometimes silicone for terrariums cannot support a full tank of water. I'd test it out for several days.
