How thick does a 17.5-inch round piece of plexi-glass need to be to support a 3 gallon fish tank? Answered

I have a round wooden table with a 17.5 inch diameter (outer edge to outer edge).  However, the diameter of the recessed part of the table is 15.5". The 3 gallon fish tank will be centered over the recessed part of the table.  How thick does the plexi-glass need to be to hold the tank without bending or breaking?

How about just cutting the plexiglass to 15.5 and not worrying about the weight.

Thanks for your suggestion, Bud. However, I want the entire diameter of the wooden table covered so that any splashed water will not ruin the table's finish.
