    I am not sure, I do not build aquariums. But you may be able to find a calculator online that can help you decide.

    For a small tank it "Should" be OK providing its quality glass not a cheap grade often used in cheap kit tanks.

    Also don't forget its on going to be as good as its construction and silicone used.
