I also did some reserch on making my own tank. glass and acrilic and found out its just not worth it money wise and reliability wise. for home use if your making non-show tanks use 3/4 plywood high temperd glass and fiberglass or just buy a heavy duty plastic tub its cheaper. at a commercail fishing outlet like the ones they use to store lobsters in.
I hope I havent discouraged you to much they say the glass is the cheapest part of a set up and its true walmart ten gal tk 8.99 heater for it 14.99 filter 14.99 lights etc.
good luck
