Brandon this is a homemade plywood tank. often constructed as tanks that size maed of plywood are cheaper then glass tanks.

I'd like to inquire as to what you sealed the plywood with? Most use fiberglass and epoxy, yours looks like varnish. What are the dimensions and thickness of the glass so I can try to remember if anyone ever asks about building a tank of their own.

Looks nice thus far.

i would also like to know what you sealed the wood with? and also how thick your wood there is as thats a lot of water to hold in - gonna be a lot of force put on your wood. something i might consider doing myself so it would be good to know.
