Default Re: Float glass vs tempered glass for tank

Glass should be chewproof. So therefore Float glass should be strong enough to withstand chewing. Although can’t say for certain whether regular chewing on the same area would cause stress cracks which may weaken the glass and cause shatters. Plus You would have to make sure the entire base is on a flat surface to avoid the same issue.

Have you asked if they would be willing to make the enclosure out of tempered glass? - the price may be more expensive though

I personally have avoided a glass enclosure as I’m worried with myself being clumsy I would accidentally shatter the glass so I’ve used thick acrylic.
