Planning on picking up some acrylic next week. I could build a 6' x 2' x 18" high tank with my off cuts.

Thought I would throw it out there I could build it pretty cheaply. Not sure if I could male it rimless though.. probably not with only 3/4" material.

How is this an easy shape? Aren't those sheets 8' x 4' ft? The length has to be the 6' dimension and the width is coming to 5' with the long walls (2' + 1.5' + 1.5').

Also, where you picking it up? One of these days, I am still planning my acrylic build.

It's an easy shape when you are cutting two 8' long 30" wide pieces for your 600 gallon build. 

I am buying plexiglass G from Laird plastics.  Was looking for acrylite but could not find it locally 😞  everyone is selling the cheap poor quality import stuff.
