Needs the brace. Make sure nothing is on the glass (Rocks/LR should not be against the glass)..


To fail to plan is to plan to fail.

bite the bullet and take it down. get yourself a new tank, or a used one with the brace. The cost to your home and fish would be greater if the tank did explode.
125gal. megaflow. Fish Residents:
Yellow Tang -(Junior), Flame Angel -(Flamey)
Bicolor Blenny -(Butch), Randall Jawfish -(Jaws)
Lawnmower Blenny -(Lenny), Talbot's Damsel -(Dottie), Tomato Clown -(Ketchup)
Nameless fish include, Neon Blenny, Singapore Shrimp Goby, Yellow Tail Damsel, 1 Skunk Cleaner Shrimps, purple pseudochromis.

No. If its bowing that much with the DIY brace and canopy, then the brace isn't doing enough and needs to be redone.

I am a tank lover myself. But Dude, you have to think about your house/apartment right now. Maybe take it down first. Just place your live rocks in a rubbermaid container or something. Then when you verified the situation, build it back up. It's some work but not even half the work you will end up with if a Deuce Bigelow disaster happens :| But no, I haven't seen a tank in my life that bows

Look at it this way. Now you have that 55 gal sump for that new 150gal you need to get.

Let's get a line wet!
