Can't find it, but a quick google says the bottom pane of glass should be tempered. If the walls are tempeted, and it fails, it will shatter into chunks, if they are not, then it will shatter into shards.
I'd say the seams are likely to give before the glass shatters anyway.

Can you take a pic of the bulging top or whatever? If you have good glass..it shouldn't bulge?

Second this I'd like to see what it looks like . Loom fish are not as important as damaging your house or apartment . 55 gallons is alot of water and can literally almost destroy your house . Ruin floors drywall and so on
