 @Imran_sids  The  calc  says  to  use  14mm  glass  now  i'm  confused.  I  don't  want  a  tsunami  in  my  house.  I  had  budgeted  for  a  12mm  nothing  above  that.

 Hi  Ryel,
 Glass  thickness  next  in  line  with  12  mm  glass  will  be  15  mm  glass.  I  make  tanks  hence  the  suggestion  for  12  mm  thick  glass.  You  will  need  to  support  the  top  edges  with  bracing  support  all  around.

 12mm  glass  should  be  good  as  the  height  is  only  30  inch.  if  the  height  is  more  then  only  you  have  to  use  more  then  12mm  glass,  top  bracing  should  be  done.

 Go  for  15mm  buddy  it  is  safe  and  you  have  calculated  in  that  link  with  minimum  safety  value  so  you  should  not  override  it  .  Be  on  the  safer  side  always  .  just  my  opinion.
