Welcome to the forum. That looks like quite a build if you are building it from scratch! I don't have any experience making my own vivs from scratch sorry. But please make sure that you share the progression. Now that you have a couple of posts you can now post to other parts of the forum. If you don't get any help here in this section try the Parts and Construction subforum.

You have not stated the dimensions of the build so it is hard to say. 6mm or 1/4” is usually good up to dimensions of 18” x 24” to 18” x 36” on a panel, as long as there is some kind of support. 8mm or 3/8” should be used for builds 24” up to 48” with support. If you get larger you will have to start looking at thicker glass or reinforcement such as the “euro braced” design of rimless aquariums.

I did forget sorry the dimensions will be 920mm x500 X 770mm it will have a brace across the top and running in the middle cannot euro brace due to the lids and acsess I would do it in 10 mm eurobraced for a fishtank but considering the fact no water will be going in I was not Shure if necessary with the X brace at the top and security film for extra safety should the worst happen but I think I will go 8 mm bye bye £311.98 lol
