I have placed order for a new tank as one of smaller tanks broke last week. 24*18*18 is the size and it would be in a 6mm glass. Is this thinckness safe for the tank size I had mentioned.
The LFS guy said it is completely safe for this size. Any suggestions please?

Buy the float glass Modi/St.Goblain from Balaji on Central street near 'Shivaji Nagar' bustand. They have computerised machines that will cut ,bevel and grind the five glass planes to your size. Call your aquarium pals to help stick them up. No big deal. You will get a better glass quality tank than the LFS.
8 mm is super but jacks up the price. Go for it if the increase is not a constraint.

This sounds perfectly safe to me. Just make sure you put supports(with the same glass) for the tank along the length of the aquarium, this way the bulging will be avoided and the tank will last for a longer time without any issues. Also be sure that the sticking of the glass is done well.
