    I'm fairly new here so if there's an existing thread let me know.

    What would be largest size tank you'd consider taking the top rim off of and what brands of tank would be best to do this with? I'd like to make a rimless 29 gallon but did Tom mention somewhere that he'd done a 75?

    Hi,

    I would just buy a rimless tank if possible and budget permits.

    I wouldn't do it with a tank larger than 20 gallons if that.

    I wouldn't feel safe in any event doing this.

    Yes, but I added some bracing in the middle and ends.
    You should wait 2 weeks before applying pressure to any 4ft long tank braces to allow them to fully dry and cure.
