 The  glass  has  arrived.  Its  sitting  on  the  balcony.
 The  guy  at  the  hardware  shop  introduced  me  to  a  young  student  kid.  Who  is  into  making  tanks.
 He  looks  like  a  kid.  But  seems  like  he  has  a  long  list  of  impresive  builds  and  makes  trips  all  over  India  collecting  fish  and  plants  for  his  customers.  He  supports  his  studies  thru  this  hobby.  And  lives  alone  with  his  mother.
 
 I  told  him  my  plans  and  said  if  you  want  to  join  and  hang  out  out  your  welcome.  So  he  has  joined  the  project  too.  And  promised  to  get  me  what  ever  fish  I  want  from  his  weekly  trips  to  Chenai.  Ill  probably  give  him  a  little  money.  After  the  tank  is  built.  Its  always  nice  to  have  somebody  around  who  has  done  this  before.
 
 Id  like  to  record  the  whole  process  with  costs.  but  dont  want  to  upset  anybody.
 So  will  just  take  some  pics.  And  post  them  up.
 The  Cut  glass  dims  are
 Base  Length  66"  x  Width  18"  
 Front  &  Back  Glass  Height  2.5  Ft  Length  5.5  Ft
 Sides  2.5  Ft  x  17.05  "
 Glass  Thickness  12mm
 Make  Mix  of  Modi  and  St  Gomain.
 Silicone  Gun  Check
 Silicone  Paste  Check
 Jute  Rope  Check.
 
 Lessons  Learned.
 Do  not  believe  a  word  the  shop  says  about  his  polishing  setup.  In  fact  ask  to  see  it.  Before  you  pay  any  money.
 While  talking  I  was  told  yes  sir  Computer  Grinding.
 When  I  went  to  follow  up  on  the  job  landed  up  spending  5  hours  at  the  shop  and  watched  on  guy  struggle  with  a  small  belt  and  ratty  old  machine.
 
 I  got  the  outside  surfaces  with  a  2mm  Bevel  and  the  inside  we  just  broke  the  sharp  edges  and  roughed  it  up  with  a  stone.
 
 Im  already  planing  my  next  tank.  I  can  fit  in  around  5  or  6  6  Footers  along  the  side  of  the  penthouse  lol.

 Tank  done.
 I  got  this  kid  to  help  me  well  to  tell  you  the  truth  he  did  it  himself.  And  did  a  pretty  good  job.  
 Cost  ?  Cant  say  here  but  he  will  take  what  ever  you  offer  him.  He  is  such  a  Fish  tank  junike  I  think  he  would  help  for  free.
 
 
 Tada
 
 
 Ps:  No  we  didn't  forget  the  reinforcement  pices.
 A  total  of  4  where  put  in  
 Two  long  pices  at  the  bottom.  and  two  at  the  top.
 Cover  will  be  in  Brushed  or  polished  Aluminum.
