Terrarium Material

Is the above Plexiglass the sort of thing i would want for a Terrarium? Or would i want something thicker?

Cheers,
Dan

I used plexiglass on a terraruim I made once. Works great. 2mm might be a little thin, but I would have to look at my stuff to see. I'll be using glass on my next one though. If you don't either frame it, or bond it together, it'll be flimsy.
