 Hello,
 
 Please  can  someone  tell  me  the  cost  for  building  an  aquarium  tank  with  size  of  36X18X18  with  front  as  extra  clear  glass.
 
 Please  can  you  provide  me  any  contact  who  will  help  me  to  build  the  same  here  in  my  home  in  Chennai?
 
 
 Thanks,
 Mani

 Hello  Guys,
 
 I  have  contacted  an  Aquarist  in  Chennai  to  build  me  3X1.5X1.5  with  8mm  glass  with  machine  pasting.
 
 I  was  told  that  8mm  will  not  hold  and  bow  and  it  is  highly  risky.  But,  I  read  and  heard  from  some  hobbyist  that  8mm  is  good  enough  to  manage  such  a  tank.  Tank  rate  quoted  is  4.7K.  Please  need  your  inputs  on  this.

 I  would  suggest  to  use  10  mm  glass.  Are  you  using  Extra  clear  glass?

 Nope..  The  cost  is  for  normal  glass  and  machine  pasting..  I  feel  that  is  bit  costly..  For  10mm  I  have  been  quoted  with  7.2K..  That  too  is  costly..  But  I  just  wanted  to  make  sure  that  will  it  not  hold  up..

 Thank  you  Mohan..  I  have  checked  online  in  many  ways..  It  shows  like  that  8mm  for  that  size  of  tank  is  above  the  safety  factor  of  4.0..
 
 But,  it  depends  on  the  quality  of  the  glass  right  and  way  of  pasting  it..  So  just  wanted  to  check  the  quality  here  in  Chennai  or  generally  in  India..
 
 If  you  know  any  contact  of  good  aquarium  makers..  please  PM  me..
 
 regards,
 Manikandan

 You  are  using  different  glasses  for  different  sides.  they  will  have  different  tolerances  to  stress  ...  Hence  go  with  10  mm  Glass.  
 
 Polishing  Glass  edges  costs  the  same  whether  its  extra  clear  or  Normal.
 
 Machine  pasting  is  a  scam,  I  have  never  come  across  a  machine  that  builds/pastes  aquariums.  Walk  away  from  the  GUY  telling  you  he  is  machine  pasting  an  aquarium.
 
 Don't  get  scammed  into  paying  all  money  up  front.  Pay  a  small  advance  and  rest  on  delivery.
