Alright so, with the help of garf, i figured out how to build my rimless tank, and i have all the tools since my pops and my grandpa have all the tools i need.
Only thing, is that garf gave me the instructions to build this tank WITH bracing. However, bracing defeats the purpose of a rimless aquarium. I'll show you guys the measurements.
Material = Glass
Tank Height = 12"
Tank Width = 28"
Tank Length = 28 "
Glass Thickness = 1/4"(thinking of making this 1/2" or 3/4" depending on glass prices)
Approximate Gallons = 41
Bottom = 27 1/2 " x 27 1/2"
Front = 28 " x 12"
Back = 28 " x 12"
2 Sides = 12 " x 27 1/2"
Top Front/Back brace = 27 1/2 " x 2"
Top Sides brace = 27 1/2 " x 2"
Now the question i have, is how to make this support the wieght of the water without using braces. I'm not familiar with the construction of rimless designed tanks, so i don't know how they make the tanks without bracing but i know it's done. I've seen tanks over 150 gallons that are rimless and have no brace support, so can anyone help me out on this one? If anyone has any experience with this i'm definitely open to suggestions, etc.. Anything that can help please let me know.
