I don't recommend making a fish tank, you could make a dry terrarium because it has a lot less stress. A 10 gallons fish tank weighs close to 100 lb when full, this mass would destroy a tank made of anything weaker then one made of tempered glass witch cant be cut after tempering, and a cast iron frame on the top and bottom.

. Everything you need to know can be found on the Web. It's fairly easy to do, but expect to have a few failures before you get the hang of it. . Unless you plan on making more than 2-3 tanks, NikonDork makes a very good point. By the time you buy tools and have a few mistakes, buying them is cheaper.

Honestly, unless your going big, or need something more then a hollow glass rectangle, your better off buying one from the pet store. I'm not sure about the side walls, but the bottom of 25gal and larger is tempered glass.
