Paul's DIY Rimless Frag Tank
I have already posted this in my tank thread but figured I would share here where it belongs as well. I ran across a free 1/4" sheet of untempered glass. I decided to try my hand at making a shallow rimless frag tank with it. The measurements I went with are 24"L, 18"W, & 8"T. It totals out to be right under 15 gallons in volume. I got the glass panels cut as following.
Bottom Panel- 23 1/2" X 17 1/2"
Front/Back Panels- 18" X 8"
Side Panels- 17 1/2" X 8"
Notice I allowed for the 1/4" on both sides taking a 1/2" out on the cuts. The sides, front, & back sit in front of the bottom panel. The front and back over the sides. I went with the 100% silicone GE I clear. It is a cheap silicone bit I've heard good results on tanks that aren't very large. Here are some photos of it so far.
