For any of the tank builders, I have a question on how a shallow tank will hold up against the weight of the water.
Here are the dimensions; 16" long, 10" wide, 4" tall. As you can see, it is extremely shallow, and will only be filled with water 2-2.5" deep.
My question is, will 3/32" glass hold up to the weight of about 1.3 gallons of water? I could also put small triangles on the corners if that would help.. I know 3/32" is pretty thin, but it's the only glass thickness that is readily available in sheets at Home Depot.
I could make the tank 12" long instead of 16" long if that would make the difference between holding up to the test of time, or spilling water all over my floor.
