Does any one know if Flex Seal is safe for sealing plywood aquariums?

I know from monster fish keeper and a couple other forums that are more plywood oriented, a lot of people use 'pond armor'. for a plywood aquarium your gonna want a way larger quantity than what comes in those cans anyways.
I know this is a silly question but I'll ask it anyway what is a plywood tank?
Quite literally just that; it's constructed from plywood. The front panel might be glass or acrylic to make it viewable from one side.
From my understanding no it is not.I'm looking myself.I'm building a small tank 36lx6wx12t.
May I ask why someone would want a plywood tank?
1) Less expensive when building a really large tank.
2) If you are building it into a wall and the back and side will not be viewable
3) in my case I had a very small unique space that I wanted to put a 10 gallon RO/DI storage tank and a regular 10 gallon tank would not fit.
I wound up shaving the black trim off it and it just fit in the area I had, so I never built the plywood tank.
Expecially if its a inwall tank you only really need a front viewing panel anyways.
You coud build a monster tank for a quarter of the price of a all glass tank.
Doesnt plywood warp and rot in water?
^^ hence, the reason for the pond sealant.
