    Plywood Tank Two Sided Viewing?

    Hi All,
    My next tank is going to be a plywood build, 96"L x 24"H 36"D. My question is, can I use one side and front as viewing sections? One side and back will be against walls. To maximize viewing area I want one side to be framed just like the front. Is this practical? Thoughts...

    Sure, it's possible just make sure the corners and 'headers' above the windows are sufficient as to not allow any bowing that will cause failure...

    Thanks, I was considering on the side 2" border and 3" on the front. In your opinion would this be sufficient?

    I'm getting ready to start a 96"L x 24"H X 32" D. Will have both side panels as a viewing area along with the front. The back will be against wall and three sides exposed.
