Building a Acrylic Aquarium

Post by iforeman »

Hi Guys

I hope someone can point me in the correct direction. I have been researching what is needed to build a acrylic aquarium. Most of the DIY tips and info originate from the USA. There the predominant product used is Chemcast® GP. Do you know what the Perspex equivalent is here in the UK. Is there a specific product in the Perspex range to use for Aquarium building?

Thanks in advance for the help.
