Tank brace

Unread postby aquascapist » Sat Aug 27, 2016 12:11 pm

HI All!
Planning to make a 150 gallon reef tank. Dimensions are 5'x2'x2'. I want to avoid the center bracing on the top of the top to prevent light blockage. Is it possible to just eurobrace the top without the center brace. The glass is going to be 12mm.


Warm Regards,
Aditya

No need of top center brancing in a five footer tank. Try to reduce height.

Thanks for the reply Rajiv ji. I can't reduce the height any further. I had originally planned for 27".
Warm Regards,
