 DIY ENCLOSURE Build Log And Arising Questions

I’m prepping my mind and getting ready to tackle building a Huge Enclosure for my two baby water monitors for now... I do have a few questions before i start going out and buying materials...

I plan to make a massive enclosure... Perferabbly the front made out of glass... or plexi glass.. whatever works.. But I have come across a problem...

I want to make the cage half aquatic... or 1/3 aquatic.... What materials could I use that would hold water?

I’ve been searching everywhere and i got no answers... I just want to make a kind of mini pond in this enclosure... Making it all out of wood doesn’t seem reasonable for holding water in my mind.. unless i’m mistaken... I’m trying to find the cheapest way to do this

For the Front i want to have 2 glass doors or 2 plexi glass doors with a lock (perferabbly the whole front would be a door so i can have full access.... ) With the bottom of the glass doors being a long Horizontal glass piece as long as the tank will be maybe about 24 inches high. So now... Any ideas on what materials could i use for the other 3 sides and the bottom to hold water? :)


Basically this enclosure but not fully glass... But dramatically bigger
