Has anyone tried replacing the bottom of a tank with 316 stainless sheet? I was thinking of replacing a sheet of 3/4 glass with 1/8" 316 stainless sheet with the edges bent up 2" to form a pan shape. Then setting the glass sides in with silicone just like a traditional all glass aquarium. I know old tanks used slate bottoms. But why not one piece of stainless I have made a stainless top frame for my 46 gal
bowfront tank after the original plastic frame broke. With a stainless bottom I could easily weld in pipe bungs for the overflow with no risk of leaking.
