8' x 3' x 1' (no euro bracing)

how come when i look at glass thickness charts there's only 2 measurements shouldn't there be 3?

also does anyone know of a calculator that doesn't involve euro bracing?

thanks!

My shallow reef is only 4'x2'x14" and is 3/8" thick glass. Given the 1' depth you won't have to use anything too thick.

ha ha.. Thats what I get posting/calculating in the early morning..
I switched up the 3 x 1 numbers in my calcs.. As I was driving to work I thought.. What a weird tank size only being 1ft front to back and 3ft deep.. who would want that..:debi:

I bought his plans for a 60g cube, but haven't gotten around to building it yet. The video makes me feel almost capable of doing this...
