I checked out the Wood by Wright on you tube that guy has some cool stuff I love woodwork. I did find the glue video Thank you for the suggestion I still need to buy a lot of glue and looks like I'm buying titebond for the remainder of this build.Gotcha, I figured you meant water resistant. Its probably too late now and its a been a while since I watched the video but wood by Wright on YouTube does a fantastic (if very long) couple of videos on wood glue under different conditions.
Glad you liked it, he does have at least 2 of those glue videos and thankfully I'm pretty sure excell spread sheets that you can look at independent of the videos IIRC. Titebond is fantastic stuff and for the majority of things you don't even need the II or III versions, but weldbond plastic resin was the best for exterior conditions which he talks about in the second video.I checked out the Wood by Wright on you tube that guy has some cool stuff I love woodwork.

Was able to make a little progress tonight after work. I put in the 2nd layer of plywood for the bottom. The bottom and all side are going to be doubled up 3/4" plywood. I just wanted to really strengthen as much as possible. Maybe not needed but sure won't hurt. I bought a gallon of Titebond 3 glue Thank You @NautiTang for the tip. I first carefully checked the fit as the second layer has to fit within the sides and with 1 side and the back not on yet I had to be sure there is space for them to sit on top of the 1st bottom layer. After a little trimming I was happy with the fit so I spread the glue on the bottom layer of plywood and laid the top layer on then screwed it down. I am now working on the right end and tomorrow I will install the back. After that I will double the front back and sides. maybe I will start fiberglass by Sunday but not sure as there is a lot of work to drilling and installing all of the screws.
Thanks Alex that link is great. I guess you must have gotten moved if your already getting prepared to start building again. Great to hear your building again.@mehaffydr Here is a useful pipe flow chart https://flexpvc.com/Reference/WaterFlowBasedOnPipeSize.shtml . The pipe flow chart does not account for fittings but ca give you some estimates. The place in the link is a good source for lots of plumbing parts that can be hard to find. I will let you know ahead of time my DIY drains were by no means silent as noise was not considered in the design. If you are looking for silence I would make an internal or external overflow box with a bean animal setup. This tank is coming along great. I will hopefully be back in building mode myself in a few weeks

I don't need complete silence as i an building walls around this tank so that the back and one side will be in the equipment room and the front and other viewing side will be the main viewing area. I just don't want Niagara Falls either.
