Building a tank

So I have this alcove, which a normal tank just won't fit into properly, so have been thinking about getting one made, or doing it myself, kind of.
Anyway, my question would be if I get the glass all cut for me and then I silicone it together, is that all that needs to be done, or do I need a specific aquarium design company to do this for me?
Also, what do you reckon, if you know, the price of having a 60x60x60 cube would cost me? I don't want anything special with it, just the usual aquarium glass and maybe ledges like clearseal aquariums, so that I can put a cover glass on, to prevent water loss, but that would be all, I'd be adding an external filter with in line heater and probably one of the arcadia luminaires.

it is fine to do everything yourself, bearing in mind if anything goes wrong then it is your fault ;)

some corner clamps help.

this is a good guide: http://www.fishforums.net/content/Aquar ... sic-Guide/

you might want to rethink about having 60cm height as lighting becomes a problem, not to mention maintenance
