Glass thinkness for overflow?

I want to make a falso wall for where my overflows are and need to purchase the glass to do this. What thinkness would I need for a 150 (72x18x28), do they make black glass, and can I use any spray paint instead.

Thanks,
Josh

Are you makeing the overflow on a end, corner, the whole lenght? If its the whole lenght or a end it should be the thickness of the tank, if its in a corner 6-10mm should be fine, hope I understood you right.

My overflows are on the end of the tank to make it a peninsula tank. Right now I have an acrylic overflow that leaves around 2-3" on each side of the tank that is a pain to clean and detritus gets stuck in there. what I want to do is to just extend the overflow box all the way across the end of the tank like a false wall (18") and the same heghit as the existing overflow box (27"). I was thinking of using 1/4" glass because there will not be much pressure because water will be on both sides of the the glass.
