The acrylic sheet on top hold the sides just like rimmed glass tanks.
A rimmless display would need acrylic 3/4" thick and cost 2+x more . It can be done, it just adds more cost.

Works for me!
Eurobrace is a term for glass displays with a rim of glass around top edge.
On acrylic displays its a 1 piece sheet with access opening cut into it. A little different construction method but more or less same thing.

Thanks again for Reading
