Glass tanks are not recommended to go higher then 36" and at that height you should be using 3/4" glass.

I've done a few large tanks from glass but never that tall. Max was 3feet. If don't suggest going that tall with glass anyhow unless you want to spend getting 1.5inch original thicker to be able, withstand the pressure.
Using silicone or uv weld glass works too, but for that size you will need euro and American bracing.
My suggestion to you is go acrylic.
hope that helps
