there will only be 6 to 8 inches of water i would mind building the tank alittle bigger but i know this will cause weaker spot towards the middle of the tank. i tihnk the glass is 1/8inch just by looking at it. i know its nowhere near 1/4

is there a way to cut a door from an exsisting aquarium and make swinging doors or is it easier to make the sliding doors? if so how would you go about cutting the already there glass to make a sliding door?

It would be to thin to hold the weight. What size tank are you building? You should be able to get 1/4 glass from a local glass shop for around $4 a square ft and if it needs to be thicker you can do a double bottom if needed.

You could but you would have to remove the hole panel to cut it.
