Diy frame strips

Hello, I recently purchased an used 54 gallon corner bow-front tank. The tank is in decent condition however when I purchased the tank it had no bottom plastic Frame. The tank holds well and no leaks . I just want to apply a frame strip on the bottom to stop damaging the bottom of the tank when I have to move it or maintenance. I looked online and went to lfs and can't find any frames for my tank. The best option is to diy a plastic strip for my tank. Any suggestions or ideas please let me know


Thank you,

You could use any of the plastic corner angles available at places like home Depot or Lowes. Their is aquarium specific trim that is sold in lengths and an LFS should be able to get it.
