Default Questions on tank

Should I buy a 422 tank with only 8mm glass. Is It safe to use? Will anyone of you be willing to use such a tank?

If I am not wrong, I ever used 4x2x2 with 6.0 mm thickness, but not safe for aro.

I believed those normal 4x2x2 tanks should be 6.0 mm too.

422 if custom make usually 10mm will be recommended ..8mm should be ok if u are not keeping big monster fish . Jus make sure the silicon is in gd condition.. And have full top bracing.

Still think 10mm will be better than 8mm. Although these fishes will the bump the glass, but still it's better for a 10mm tank as the water pressure is another factor.
