Glass type

Postby AS.Legion » Tue Sep 25, 2012 8:47 am

OK... so I am finishing of the design for my first tank and I am now stuck on the decision of water glass to use.

What is the standard recommended and what type?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

It depends on what size you are working with. 4mm is fine for small cages and really large ones will need 10mm.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

What snakes? or reptiles?
I successfully had 2m Burmese in with reasonably large panes of glass at 5mm.
