Are there any threads on building a glass aquarium?

I want to build my own aquarium and try to save $ on labor cost, not to mention that it would be a great experience. Since I will be building a rimless 120 gallon or larger I am going to go with 3/4" glass.

1) Are there any threads on techniques on building glass aquariums?
2) What is the best place to buy low iron glass?

Thanks.

James thanks for the links.

James and Matt I was hoping you wouldn't say classcages. They quoted me a price for the glass that is actually higher than what they sell their built tanks for. They build their rimless out of 3/4" so I am going to follow suit if I can find the glass for cheaper. I am within proximity to Mexico so I am going to check what they offer over the border. :)

at least in my area, they were 60% of what std glass places wanted for it (but they are local for me so no shipping)....since they use so much, they get a qty discount. the owner told me they get glass shipments sometimes every 2 weeks.....by the 18-wheeler load :eek1:
