    I would make it from glass, there really isn't a good adhesive that bonds acrylic to glass with any amount of useful strength, unless you're adding a eurobrace for aesthetics then silicone would do the job.

    I saw some aquarium manufacturing do hybrid tank with combine of glass front, acrylic side/back and PVC on bottom of each side of the tank. I seen some glass tank with acrylic euro brace but I don't know which adhesive they use to glue them together.

    Have used e6000 from tap. Works well for glass to acrylic. Not sure if it would be strong enough for a brace like that though.

    I have a 300 gallon tank with plastic bottom glass sides plastic overflow and a plastic one piece euro brace on top. No problems. I do not no the manufacture but for the size there must be products out there to hold them together. I will say it takes 6 people to carry it .
