<< I plan to build an aquarium that will be 72" long by 36" wide by 30" high.

When I contacted a glass dealer to find out what thickness of glass it'd take
to make it, he said I'd have to contact an aquarium maker as they have some
sort of chart that determines the thickness. I don't know an aquarium maker,
so, is there anyone out there who has this information. Thanks in advance
for any help.

I have an aquarium a bit smaller than that size (actually 72" long by 18"
wide by 21" high) and the glass is 1/2 inch thick. The depth is one
determining factor, but the length is important too. Mine has a reinforcing
bar across the middle at the top. You may need thicker than 1/2 inch for the
depth you want.
