I have a 100 gallon rimless tank.

It has 2 braces in it.

The glass is 10mm
the front pain is 51 1/2 inches X 23 1/2 inches

width is 19 1/2 inches

The braces are 5 1/2 inches from both the edge and are 5 1/2 inches wide.

I want to remove both of them.

What are your opinions?

Thanks

Unless you engineered the tank and know what the pressures and spec on the glass are I wouldn't do it. You'll end up with 100+ gallons of ocean on your floor. Just my $0.2

I would not remove them either. Those braces are there for a reason. They may be flimsy or look like they are not doing anything but they are.

I tend to agree with you all, that is why I haven't done anything.

I guess I really need to do if I don't like them is buy a new tank :)
