I have a 300 gallon tank (reef) And it is old school glass. The problem is that the center brace is glass also but it is about 16 inches wide and is 4 peices thick pyramiding (is that a word?LOL
) up to the top of the tank totaling 1 1/2 inches thick!! The reason I bring this up is that even my 400 watt halides can't get through it, and being as it is in the middle of the tank I can't get any acro
's/light loving corals to grow there very well. So can it be removed/replaced WITHOUT draining the tank or having the tank blow out when I remove the glass peices? Or should I just remove a couple of the peices for better light penatration? Any help/ suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Here is a couple pic's to help you out.
One from the bottom looking up, One from the top looking down and one looking at the front of the tank (Notice in this one how much dimmer the middle of the tank is) Keep in mind this tank has 1640 watts of light.
